Listen up. It’s time to talk – and we hope you can hear us – about the dangers of workplace noise and its long-term impact on your ability to enjoy birds singing, music playing and the play-by-play of your favorite sportscaster.
Workplace noise can be a real threat to your hearing. The best way to measure it is with a decibel meter, but we know you don’t pack one in your pocket. So, pay attention to other signs like ringing ears when you leave work or the need to shout to get the attention of nearby co-workers.
If you suspect your workplace noise is damaging your hearing, ask your company safety supervisor for hearing protection. And wear it like it’s the hottest new set of headphones … except to listen to this video on workplace noise and how to prevent its damage.
