You could have developed noise induced hearing loss (deafness) at work if your employer has failed in their duty to protect all employees from harm.
There are always hazards in every place of employment even in offices and employers have a legal obligation to carry out a risk assessment in order to ensure that all hazards are eliminated or taken care of. Noise is an extreme hazard as it can destroy a person’s ears for life. If your employer has not taken care to ensure that your hearing is protected adequately then you are legally entitled to pursue a compensation claim. In order to be eligible to make a claim you must start your case within the respective time limit.
The daily noise exposure limit which is not allowed to be exceeded is 87dB and the peak sound pressure of 140dB. If employees are exposed to sounds over these maximum levels they must be offered an adequate level of protection to save their ears and hearing from damage. If an employer fails to provide employees with the equipment necessary to protect them from exposure to these levels of noise then the employer is responsible for any damage that is caused to the hearing.
Your employer must carry out a risk assessment of the noise levels in the workplace and have them measured properly to ensure that employees are not being exposed to dangerous levels of noise. The risk assessment has to be carried out by someone who is competent and that will provide accurate information.
