Industrial deafness or noise related hearing loss is a condition that is a consequence of working an environment which presents you to loud or constant noise for prolonged periods of time. The effects can be temporary and if the ears are allowed to recover sufficiently for a long enough period the sufferer will sustain no permanent damage. However if a worker is exposed to a high level of constant noise without any adequate protection for a number of years the effects can be irreversible.
It is an employer’s legal responsibility to ensure that proper measures have been put in place to offer a safe working environmentfor employees with access to any necessary protection such as ear plugs or muffs for those that may need them.
