    The most important thing you can do to prevent hearing loss is to properly wear required hearing protection.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that wearing required hearing protection is crucial in preventing hearing loss. Exposure to loud noises, whether in the workplace or recreational activities, can damage the delicate structures in the ear over time. By wearing the appropriate hearing protection, such as earplugs or earmuffs, the ears are shielded from excessive noise levels, reducing the risk of hearing damage. It is important to follow safety guidelines and regulations to ensure proper protection and maintain good hearing health.

    The only way a person "gets used to" a noise over time is by losing more and more of their hearing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because as a person's hearing deteriorates over time, they may become accustomed to certain noises that were once loud or bothersome. This is due to the gradual loss of sensitivity to sound, which can make the noise seem less noticeable or bothersome. Therefore, the only way for someone to "get used to" a noise over time is by experiencing a decline in their hearing ability.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that C&B portable water pumps produce a loud noise that is sufficient to cause potential harm to crewmembers' hearing. As a result, it is necessary for the crewmembers to wear hearing protection while operating these pumps.
