Importance of Hearing Protection
We live in an increasingly noisy world. There is an increasing prevalence of impaired hearing, it is estimated six million people in the U.K would benefit from a hearing aid as a result of permanent damage and the number is increasing all the time.
With increased noise in the work place and the use of personal stereos the average age at which hearing damage occurs is also lowering.
Noise induced Hearing loss occurs as a result of exposure time, the average noise intensity and your individual susceptibility to damage. Musicians, machine operators, DJ's and other hobbies including DIY, or pigeon shooting have high noise level exposure, which has a potential to cause permanent hearing loss.
Custom made hearing protectors offer more effective protection, better comfort without the loss of clarity that conventional protectors produce.
We specialise in custom hearing protection for all occupations and hobbies.

What is the noise at work regulation?
The noise at work regulation came into force for all industry sectors in Great Britain on the 6th of April 2006 (except for the music and entertainment sectors where it came into force on the 6th of April 2008).
The aim of the regulation is to ensure the employees hearing is protected from excessive noise in the work place, which could cause permanent damage to their hearing and/or cause them to suffer from tinnitus (a permanent ringing in the ears).
