OSHA Has a Lot to Say about Noise!

OSHA, which is under the United States Department of Labor and stands for Occupational Safety and Health Administration, takes great interest in occupational noise exposure. You don’t see articles about it online very often, or on the local or national news, but twenty-two million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise at work each year. Last year, U.S. business paid more than $1.5 million in penalties for not protecting workers from noise. To put it in even larger numbers, an estimated $242 million is spent annually on workers' compensation for hearing loss disability.

If you suspect that your own workplace is too noisy, here are some clues that you’re right. From the OSHA website:

o You hear ringing or humming in your ears when you leave work.
o You have to shout to be heard by a coworker an arm's length away.
o You experience temporary hearing loss when leaving work.

If you’re reading this, chances are you don’t work in an environment where machinery and heavy equipment are involved. Those situations require other solutions to the problems. But regardless of your home or work situation, noise controls are the first things you can implement against excessive noise exposure. With the reduction of even a few decibels, danger to your hearing is reduced and communication is improved.

This is exactly when you’ll want a Yacker Tracker. You set the acceptable decibel level before the voice or siren go off, and if you like, you can set your unit to be only visual in situations where people are hearing-impaired, or where you require complete silence. Maybe backstage at a play? Please Take a Look to see just how it works.

We’re pleased to offer two versions of the Yacker Tracker. We also have a Deluxe model. Please See our Products to decide which one is right for you and your needs. For More Information just click and you can read our Help and FAQ page. There is also a page on our site for you to contact us directly.

Always do the best you can to save your hearing. And thank you for making us part of it. If you have some stories to share, we’d love to hear them. Enjoy your quieter and more peaceful life!

We hope that we can be of help. Everyone is entitled to some peace of mind. And that’s usually accomplished in a quieter setting.

To your health!

Hospital Waiting Rooms

If you’ve ever been in a hospital waiting room, or a waiting room in a doctor’s office, you know that they can be busy places. Many people are concerned or stressed-out and though they may seem to be anxiously looking around, they are relying on a sense of quiet and calm to allow themselves to think clearly.

Many waiting rooms have video screens or televisions to offer some focused diversion. As you know, you will also see people on their laptops or reading books, or checking their cell phones. Some people pace and some people seem to just stare out a window or at their shoes. Whatever they’re doing, a burst of noise or a continuing high level of noise can be invasive and disturbing. Even if that person is just waiting for a regular office visit, no one likes to be jarred.

Many hospitals and medical offices have found great success using Yacker Trackers or Deluxe Yacker Trackers in their facilities. They allow a level of sound deemed appropriate for the environment. When the very easy system is set up for use, and the sound level selected, there is no embarrassment in someone being told to be quiet, or to go outside, and no one is glaring at a noisy person. They make the experience easier and more pleasant for everyone.

Please see our Yacker Trackers to choose the one that’s right for you. And of course there are many other uses for them, as well. Yacker Tracker Uses will take you to our idea page.

It’s Getting Really Dangerous Out There!

According to NBC News, preliminary estimates from the National Safety Council indicate motor vehicle deaths were 9 percent higher through the first six months of 2016 than in 2015, and 18 percent higher than two years ago at the six month mark. This is the largest year-over-year percent increase in 50 years. An estimated 19,100 people have been killed on U.S. roads since January – enough to fill 382 school buses – and 2.2 million were seriously injured. The total estimated cost of these deaths and injuries is $205 billion. But if you have your children on that school bus, or in your own van or motorhome, and maybe someone else’s children are with you, you know that it’s not the monetary cost that matters. It’s the lives. There is nothing more precious.

There are many factors that contribute to these frightening and concerning statistics, and driver distraction is one of them. Drivers texting and talking on their cells, eating, even putting on makeup. We’re sure you’ve seen them. One news report showed a woman steering with her feet while she ate and texted. Holy mackerel. Can you imagine? And how safe is it for anyone, driving any kind of vehicle, with those people on the road?

As a concerned parent or guardian, it’s in everyone’s best interest if you can talk to your school about putting a Yacker Tracker on a school bus. No matter how experienced and careful the drivers are, it’s too easy to become distracted. Children and teenagers seem to bring chatter and shrieking wherever they go, and this can cause a driver to focus on that almost involuntarily. Those few moments can be the distraction that causes an accident. The same is true if you’re driving a van or motorhome. Yacker Trackers can be installed using the adapter and batteries. Your young passengers will quickly get the message that loud noises while in a moving vehicle are not okay. It’s a small investment to make to keep everyone safe on the streets and highways. You can decide together which noise level is acceptable. Make them part of the experience and teach them safe driving habits at the same time. Even though they’re kids, they might just thank you when you get them to where they’re going in one piece. Even if they don’t, the other parents will. And your local schools might throw you a parade.

Please See our Products and get started on the right road. And be careful out there!

A Quieter Day Care!

Don’t you just love children? They fill your heart and your soul. They bring you joy and almost more smiles than anyone is entitled to. Those are probably just a few of the reasons that you either own a daycare facility or work in one. You might have your own business at your home, or you might work for a corporation dealing with the children of employees. You might be part of an organization that takes care of children after school. In any of these situations the kids you work with can be anywhere from infant age up to mid-teens. Whether you deal with two or two hundred children on a daily basis, you certainly know how much attention and concentration and good will it takes!

Amidst all of the activities and eating and naps and lessons, does just the sound of the room ever get to be too much for you? Do you ever feel as though you’re not interacting with normal children but with children raised by wolves? You’re not alone. And we have just what you need!

A Yacker Tracker will tell children of all ages, leaving out the infants, when noise is too much noise. You set the level that is acceptable, and when the noise in the room exceeds that, the Yacker Tracker changes color and the siren/speaker will come on. Learning how to control themselves is a plus of day care. You teach and show kids not to kick each other, or pull each other’s hair, or eat someone else’s lunch. You teach them how to share and how to be kind and how to play together. The Yacker Tracker is another piece of the puzzle. Kids making noise is a normal part of life. You’re reaching for an aspirin every hour is not.

Once kids learn to control their “inside” and “outside” voices you may be surprised by the gratitude that their parents genuinely feel. And a lack of ear-splitting noise will make whatever day care you work in a happier place.

Please See our Products and select the one that’s right for you! We’d be delighted to be part of making your day as calm and productive as possible.

Curb Residential and Party Noise!

You are no doubt familiar with Airbnb by now. It’s a worldwide company that deals with homeowners renting out their homes for short-term rentals. (There are a few other companies in this business now as well, but Airbnb is the most well-known.) It’s appealing on many counts, but more and more reports are surfacing publicly about the damage, both perceived and real, that the short-term renters are responsible for. One of the biggest complaints, lodged by neighbors and neighborhoods of the rentals, is noise.

It’s normal to want to go on vacation and party. Kick off your shoes and have a great time. But frequently the kinds of parties you might have in a short-term rental aren’t the same as the ones you’d have in your own home. In your own home you know your neighbors and you probably don’t want to disturb them until the wee hours of the morning with your revelry. You might make them angry and they might even call the cops! And this could easily affect your relationship, which up until now has been pretty good. In a short-term rental you have no idea who is next door or down the street. And you’re not staying for that long, so..... whatever.

For both the owners and the short-term renters to make this work, we suggest installing at least one Yacker Tracker in the rentals. Set to an appropriate noise level for the neighborhood, and it will serve as a gentle reminder about when normal noise is too much noise. See if you can put the use of the Yacker Tracker(s) into your rental agreement. This might make some people think twice about renting, but they’re really not the people you want anyway. You want responsible renters, who will respect your property and its surroundings.

It will serve you well to be discerning in whom you rent to. While Airbnb can be a great way to generate some added income, you don’t want it to cause any problems or cause anyone to try to stop you from taking advantage of it. Yacker Tracker will help smooth the way for all of you to make the best of this experience!

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us and tell us all about it. Send us a picture or video and we will post it!

If a problem should arise, we have made available printable instructions and troubleshooting guides on our site.

---

Troubleshooting Your Yacker Tracker

Whether your Yacker Tracker has been working perfectly until now, or you’ve had an issue since you first got it, we hope that the following will help.

First things first! Did you read all of the instructions completely? If you can’t find what you did with them (don’t worry... it happens), you can read or download them from Our Site. Just click where it says “Original Yacker Tracker Directions when you get to the page. For Deluxe Yacker Tracker instructions visit This Page and click where it says “Deluxe Yacker Tracker Directions”.

You’ll want to check the location of where you’re using your Yacker Tracker. Try it in different locations in the area where you are using it to make sure that it’s not being obstructed by anything. You don’t want to place it behind anything where the microphone could be blocked and you don’t want to place it near a door where people will be coming and going. You also don’t want it next to a whiteboard where the sound of writing might be intrusive. Try it on a wall and see if that doesn’t help.

Are you using the correct adapter? The Yacker Tracker is designed to be used with the one included with the unit. Input: 100-240V AC 50-60Hz, output: 97 DC 500 Ma. Using an incompatible adapter my damage the unit. Make sure the adapter is plugged into the unit and the power cord is plugged all the way into the power outlet. If you’re using batteries, make sure they’re in the correct position. Try fresh AA batteries. The unit takes 6. Please note that before installing batteries you must unplug the adapter from the electrical outlet.

If the siren isn’t working, make sure that you’re in Siren Mode by pressing the mode button to toggle through the various options.

If your personal message isn’t working, try recording it again. Press and hold the REC button (don’t let it up!) and start recording your message into the microphone after you hear the first beep sound. Your recording will stop when you either release the REC button or when you hear a second beep beep sound after 15 seconds.

If none of this solves your problem, you may want to return and exchange your unit. Proof of purchase receipt will be required. If you would like to check with us first please fill out this Form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you for using the Yacker Tracker. We truly appreciate your business!

--- Monitoring Pool Noise Can Save a Life

As summer is quickly approaching, it’s time to think about pool safety. If you have a pool at your home or are lucky enough to have access to one, we’d like to share some facts that are both critical and perhaps surprising. We have excerpted some information here, but to read more, please see Unintentional Childhood Drowning.

For the years 2005-2009, there were an average of 3,533 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day.

- About one in five people who die from drowning is a child 14 or younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.

- Children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates. In 2009, among children 1 to 4 years old who died from an unintentional injury, more than 30% died from drowning. Among children ages 1 to 4, most drownings occur in home swimming pools. Drowning is responsible for more deaths among children 1-4 than any other cause except congenital anomalies.

- Among those 1-14, fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death behind motor vehicle crashes.

We know that you are concerned with keeping children safe. So are we. When children are playing in a pool or in a pool area there is a lot of happy noise to be heard. Sometimes it’s so happy that it’s almost deafening! While having fun is a wonderful part of life – and childhood – if the noise might drown out a child calling in distress, or you might not hear your child at all, this could signal a serious problem. Since children should always be watched while in this situation, if you turn away for even a moment you could be inviting danger. With a Yacker Tracker installed you will be able to monitor the noise level at all times. You set the limit of acceptable noise and you set it so that you can clearly hear the ongoing activity. If the area is larger, you may want more than one Yacker Tracker. There is nothing more dearly than the life of your child.

Show all of the children, and adults, how the Yacker Tracker works and have a safer experience at the pool. Marco Polo!

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us and tell us all about it. Send us a picture or video and we will post it!
