Causes of hearing loss:
Hearing loss is the 2nd most wide spread health issue the world is currently tackling, affecting over 360 million people.
A noisy work environment causes industrial deafness either by a sudden, damaging noise or prolonged exposure to harmful noise levels. More high-risk occupations include:
Long-term exposure to 80dB of noise can damage your hearing.
A drill can make 100-110 dB of noise.
A quiet office generates 40-50 dB of noise.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005) aim to protect employees from exposure to noise levels in excess of 85 decibels. In such circumstances, employers are legally obliged to provide ear defenders or earplugs.
