Ear Protection – Use It Or Lose It…
Tinnitus impacts 1 in 7 adults in the UK and severely diminishes the quality of life for 1 in 6 of those individuals.
Exposure to high noise levels can cause permanent hearing damage, often without the sufferer being aware of it until it is too late.
It may lead to Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) or deafness.
Noise induced hearing loss caused by work is preventable but once hearing has gone it won’t come back.
Wearing correct PPE such as earmuffs &/0r earplugs could be all it takes to protect your hearing. Exposer to 85 decibels or more – known as the ‘Action Level’ – is when ear protection must be worn.
