Our specialist noise-induced hearing loss solicitors can help you make a no-win-no-fee compensation claim.

Working in bars and nightclubs can put you at risk of losing your hearing or developing a noise-induced hearing condition such as tinnitus (ringing in your ears). Even if you only work part time in a bar, pub or club the noise levels are often far above the recommended noise level limit, which means that musicians, DJs, bartenders, toilet attendants and security staff are at high risk of developing noise-induced hearing loss or acoustic shock syndrome. 

If you think you’ve developed hearing problems from working in noisy environments, then you could make a claim for significant compensation. Typical claims range from £5,000 – £30,000 depending on the severity of your hearing loss.

You could make a hearing loss claim if:

  • You have worked in a bar, nightclub, pub or music venue for at least a year.
  • You regularly suffer from ringing in your ears
  • Your hearing has been significantly affected from prolonged exposure to noise.
  • The noise levels at your place of work exceeded 85dB 
  • The hearing loss you suffer from is affecting your daily life.

The Law On Hearing Protection In Bars, Clubs and Pubs

In 2005, the Control of Noise At Work Regulations act came into force for the music and entertainment industries and meant that employers needed to control the amount of noise exposure thir employees had and provide adequate hearing protection for them to wear.

Noise is measured in decibels (dB) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) conducted studies to find out what levels of noise were prone to damaging hearing long term. They found that noise levels less than 75dB were unlikely to cause any damage (a normal conversation is around 60dB) however research into noise levels at bars, clubs and pubs found that decibel readings in these places often exceeded 95 – 100 dB; 25% higher than the recommended limit.

Being constantly exposed to these high levels of noise over a prolonged period of time would certainly damage a person’s hearing.
