Hearing Protection FAQs

Personal Protective Equipment (or safety gear) is developed to meet specialised applications and offer optimum protection.

ProChoice Safety Gear must pass stringent testing procedures in house and where applicable meet Australian Safety Standards. This means our range has been developed for particular applications.

To assist in choosing the correct safety gear for a job we have put together some Frequently Asked Question's about each of our product categories. Product knowledge is important. If you have any particular questions, please contact us at
