Hearing Protection

Keeping your hearing healthy is largely about knowing how much loud sound you’re exposed to. Hearing protection helps to reduce your exposure to dangerous noise levels and protect your hearing from future problems.

Most cases of deafness (around four out of every five) are caused by damage to the tiny hair cells in the inner ear. This damage can be the result of too much noise, and it’s permanent. Noise-related hearing loss is usually irreversible.

It is important that we all take steps to prevent noise-related damage. The key to keeping your hearing intact is to avoid loud noise. The louder the sound, the less time you can safely listen to it. Just because a sound isn’t annoying doesn’t make it safe.
