Safe Sound Indicator
We are very happy to inform that we have a Safe Sound Indicator (SSI) in preschool to monitor the noise level. The National Foundation for the Deaf inc. has developed a Safe Sound Indicator (SSI) specially for the early childhood sector. The SSI provides a visual feedback tool for both children and educators, enabling children to identify and manage high noise exposure. It’s a small black, plastic box that displays the noise levels through a set of “traffic lights”. Green indicates the safe noise level where as Amber and Red are warning signals to stop the noise, as it’s in the danger zone for causing hearing loss.
