Hearing protection is designed to protect workplace personnel from hearing damage that may occur from excessive noise levels when work is being performed.
It is commonly used in construction, mining, agricultural and transport industries etc.
Constant exposure to high noise can cause the following health related problems:
- Elevated blood pressure
- Digestive disorders
- Increased susceptibility to colds and other minor infections.
- Hearing loss
The degree of hearing loss depends on the loudness of the noise and the level of exposure. Once hearing is damaged, it can’t be restored.
