Exposure to loud noises causes irreversible damage to the delicate hairs that line the cochlea, resulting in permanent hearing loss. Many cases of noise- induced hearing loss related to occupation or recreational activities could be avoided if the correct noise protection is worn.
Noise induced hearing loss is irreparable!!! If you work in an industry which has high levels of noise, you should protect your hearing today.
Noise has the potential to affect workers in a variety of environments. Hazardous noise should be removed from the workplace whenever possible. In situations where noise exposure cannot be easily controlled or eliminated, hearing protection is recommended. It is vital that the type of hearing protection selected be appropriate for the levels of noise experienced, that it is comfortable and worn correctly.
Under the recent General Applications Act of 2007, Irish companies must comply with regulations in place to make sure that employees are protected from harmful levels of noise emissions. This legislation makes the protection of workers from noise exposure mandatory.
O’Grady’s Hearing Care provides industrial screening, and a comprehensive range of bespoke custom hearing protection solutions for those who are employed in environments where there is prolonged exposure to noise.
We recommend the ACS Pro Series Hearing Protection system which has several levels of attenuation available depending on the noise level in environment they will be worn in.
Various airport workers, members of the Defense Forces and Aircorps, motorcyclists and musicians are among our happy customers who have benefitted from our custom hearing protection moulds.
