Prevalence of Hearing Loss in the HSA Sector and Its Surveillance

What the Numbers Say

Hearing loss reported by employees in the healthcare and social assistance sector ranges anywhere from 19 to 31%, according to NIOSH statistics. Many people naturally assume that these industries fall on the low end when it comes to noise exposure or exposure to ototoxic chemicals, such as carbon monoxide and organic solvents. In areas where proper steps were used to reduce noise levels, the numbers are much lower than in areas where no precautions are taken.

Occupational Hearing Loss for Employees in the Health Care and HSA Sectors Is Preventable

Employers are responsible for protecting their workers from injury while they are in the workplace. When it comes to hearing loss, the majority of reported occupational hearing loss was preventable. By providing protective ear wear/headphones and using other noise reducing technology, employers can reduce their employees’ risk of hearing loss dramatically.
