Risks of Occupational Hearing Loss and How Employers Can Mitigate Them

On the job, hearing is one of your most important senses. When it is lost, either partially or totally, it can affect how you do your job. Your employer is responsible for providing you with the tools you need to protect your hearing. You may not realize how your hearing is being affected. If you work in an area where loud noises are common, ask your employer for earplugs or a noise-canceling headset to protect your hearing.

Hearing Loss and Decreased Productivity

When you begin to lose your hearing, you can start to feel isolated or misunderstood. It can be extremely frustrating when you can’t hear what others are trying to say. It can make you miss important information or hear noises that could warn you of dangerous situations.

Steps Employers Can Take to Protect Your Hearing

There are several things employers can do to protect your hearing. In addition to setting aside funds to buy ear protective headphones and noise-canceling headsets, employers can also do the following:

  • Offer regular hearing tests for employees who are constantly exposed to noise
  • Designate a human resource member to deal with specific issues that are associated with hearing loss
  • Educate employees about hearing loss and how they can prevent it
  • Teach employees the signs of early hearing loss and what they can do if problems arise. Work with your employer to prevent work-related hearing loss and learn as much as you can about the issue.

Your hearing health should not be put on hold. Avoid hearing loss at work by asking your employer for the protection you need.
