Hearing Loss… Say What?
Hearing loss isn’t visible like other injuries, but it remains a serious health issue in today’s workplaces. Whether you use leaf blowers outdoors or work indoors around industrial machinery or barking dogs, loud noise during work activities can permanently damage your hearing and cause persistent ringing in your ears (tinnitus). Excess noise may add risk for dangerous workplace safety accidents when it interferes with communication and concentration. Prevention begins with identifying noise sources and evaluating workers’ exposures to find out if noise exposure is hazardous. Join us to learn more about hearing loss exposure.
