In 2005 the control of noise at work regulations were introduced to improve and increase the effectiveness of the noise at work regulations of 1989 to ensure that greater care is taken by employers to protect their employees from disease or injury in the workplace.

Even though it is more financially advantageous for employers to invest in workplace safety than it is for them to have employees making claims against them for workplace accidents and illnesses many employers still try to cut corners to save money where they can; many of them do this at the expense of their employees. There is no excuse for an employer to cut corners when it comes to health and safety because the most important aspect of running a company should be the safety of the people that work for you.

If you want an estimate of the amount of compensation you should expect to receive you need to speak to a personal injury solicitor and give them all of the details about your hearing injury and the way it was sustained so they can calculate your expected award amount.
