Employers have long had a duty to protect your health and safety. They may have failed you in that duty even if you didn’t realise it at the time.
Regular, frequent and intense exposure of loud noises at work can cause serious damage to your ears. This can lead to hearing loss and tinnitus. The effects of noise damage on your ears can only become apparent years later.
If you have worked in heavy industry or occupations with loud and sustained noise levels you may have sustained a noise inducted hearing loss.
If you or a family member works or has worked in heavy industry, no matter whether retired or not, and has hearing difficulties, we can arrange a consultation with a specialist ENT consultant. A specialist report will be able to identify the cause and extent of any hearing loss and will advise on a specialist hearing aid.
Examples of industries that have caused hearing loss injuries are:
- Ship Building
- Aircraft Manufacture
- General industry
