Hearing Loss Prevention

Hearing loss can occur due to various factors and prevention is not always possible. However there are a few steps you can take to best protect your hearing:

  • Turn it down - Don’t have the television, your radio or your music on too loud. A good way to gauge reasonable levels of noise is by trying to determine if you could have a comfortable conversation with someone who is two meters (around 6.5ft) away from you, if you can’t – the volume needs to be turned down. There shouldn’t be any ringing in your ears after listening to music.
  • Protect your ears - Use ear protection equipment such as ear muffs or ear plugs if you work in a noisy environment such as a building site, a workshop, pub or nightclub.
  • Wear headphones - Use headphones that have noise-reducing capability, this means that rather than turning up the volume, your headphones will reduce ambient noise.
  • Be careful with your ears - Don’t insert foreign objects into your ears, this includes cotton buds, fingers, tissue and cotton wool.
