I just found this link that includes a series of 20 articles on the
study of hearing protection devices (i.e., ear plugs, ear muffs, etc.)
from Cabot Safety.  There's a good article (number 19) on the proper
use of earplugs (the article claims that most people in fact do not
fit their earplugs properly thereby reducing effectiveness). The
URL is:

Note that the proper URLs for articles 19 and
20 are respectively,

as there is currently an error in the main page.
