In accordance with British law industrial Injury claims can be made by victims in London who have suffered from neglect in the workplace which has caused their hearing to deteriorate.

If your hearing has been damaged severely or mildly no matter what to what extent your hearing has been affected you are entitled to make an industrial disease claim for hearing loss compensation if you can prove that your employers negligence is the cause of your hearing loss.

Most employers have health and safety laws that they have to conform to in order to keep their employees safe and minimise their risk of exposure to anything dangerous in the workplace. If there are hazardous substances in the workplace then employees must be given all of the necessary equipment in order to ensure they receive the maximum protection from the substances they are in contact with including noise.

Safety equipment alone is not enough to keep members of staff protected from hazardous substances in the workplace; employers must provide extensive training to all members of staff new or old about how to limit their exposure to the substance by using the safety equipment safely and handling the substances correctly. Equipment is no good without the relevant training on how to use it. The importance of using the safety devices they are provided with should be made very clear to all employees and rules about using safety equipment should be enforced.

Industrial injury claims can be made employees in London whose employers have failed to identify noise hazards in the workplace and who have failed to implement safe practicing procedures in the workplace with regards to the safe use of equipment in the workplace and also if they have neglected to provide employees with the correct noise defence equipment.

As mentioned above there are many health and safety regulations in place and different regulations will apply to different industries rather than others. The control of noise at work act 2005 relates to a surprisingly large number of differing industries. Noise at work is commonly associated with industries such as ship building steel and metal manufacturing and quarrying; it is a lesser known fact that nightclub workers bar staff and even call centre operatives are also at risk of suffering from occupational hearing loss. Any kind of hearing injury which has been caused by exposure to noise levels in the workplace is classed as an industrial diseaseor injury and could qualify for a compensation award.
