The Importance of hearing protection
Exposure to loud noise can cause irreversible damage to your hearing. This damage can be sudden, or it can develop over a long period of time. Unfortunately, once damage to your ears occurs, there is NO cure. This makes using ear defenders not only highly important, but a legal requirement.
Under European law, employers must provide hearing protection for workers in environments where noise levels are higher than 80dB. Where noise exposure is higher than 87dB, the use of hearing protection is mandatory.
