You may have developed noise-induced hearing loss if your employer has failed in their duty to protect their employees from harm.
We understand that there is little that can be done about the noise that is emitted from certain types of equipment in the working environment. Most of the machines and equipment that are responsible for generating so much noise in places of employment are vital every day machines that are needed to keep the world going.
Even though the majority of employers cannot change the noise levels that are emitted from these machines they can do something about the training and protection they offer their staff. All employers have to provide their employees with an adequate level of ear defence from the excessive sounds in the workplace.
In every place of work there is always the risk of exposure to excessive noise levels even in seemingly quiet places like offices. Employers have a legal responsibility to perform a risk assessment of the workplace in order to ensure that all noise hazards are eradicated or employees are provided with the necessary protection. Noise can be an extreme hazard to an employee’s health if they are not protected adequately. If your employer has neglected to take responsibility for ensuring that your hearing is protected adequately then you are legally entitled to pursue a compensation claim. In order to be able to start a claim you must start your case within the relevant time constraints.
