USPS and OWCP claims for hearing loss

Many Postal workers do not realize that the hearing loss they suffer over many years from noise exposure on their job is considered a compensable work injury by OWCP. It is important to be aware that a claim for this type of injury must be filed within three years of when you were last exposed to noise on the job. Sometimes a claim can be filed beyond the three year time limitation if the hearing loss was previously documented through a program of annual hearing tests conducted by the employing establishment.
