Noise Induced Hearing Loss

Have you been subjected to high or sustained levels of noise at any of your employments? Are you finding it more difficult to hear than before? If so, you could be suffering from Noise Induced Hearing Loss.

Noise Induced Hearing Loss most commonly develops over a long period of time due to sustained exposure to loud noise at your employment, such as factory machines or mills. However, Noise Induced Hearing Loss can also occur after a single event such as a loud explosion. If it was necessary to raise your voice to communicate with work colleagues, you could have been exposed to excessive noise which has since developed into Noise Induced Hearing Loss.

 

Until recently, ear protection was not a requirement and most employers did not consider it within their risk assessments. As a result of this many employees who were sustained to high levels of continuous noise have since developed Noise Induced Hearing Loss.
