Nr N was exposed to noise continuously from the hydraulic machinery in the factory where he was an employee.

Mr N’s wife urged him to go to the doctor to get his hearing tested. Mr N’s GHP referred him to an audiologist for a hearing test.
Mr N’s audiology report clearly state that he was suffering from a degree of hearing loss. The specialists advised him to stay away from loud noises in the workplace as they would exacerbate his ear injuries. Mr N had not realised that all of the loud noises in the workplace were causing so much damage to his hearing. Mr N thought he was just used to the noises as he had been working there for 8 years.
Mr N asked his employers to provide him with ear protection as he becameconcerned about the damage his working environment was causing in his ears. Mr N was told that it was not company policy to provide such items but he was welcome to purchase his own to wear to work. Mr N had not known that different types of ear protection lessened the amount of decibels differently. Some ear protection is more effective than others.
