Hearing Protection

With nearly 30 million workers exposed to potentially hazardous noise levels on the job, occupational hearing loss is a common and expensive problem in the workplace today.

The likelihood of hearing loss increased in environments where workers are also exposed to agents such as lead, vibration, carbon monoxide, chemicals and solvents.

Although any worker exposed to loud sounds are at risk for hearing loss, there are several high-risk careers, including:

  • Carpentry
  • Plumbing
  • Agriculture
  • Mining
  • Transportation
  • Military
  • Sports team coaching
  • Construction
  • Concrete work
  • Painting/Paper Hanging
  • Roofing

In these high-risk occupations, an average of only 15% of employees use hearing protection, according to NIOSH.
