What Is Industrial Deafness & Who Are The Sufferers?

Industrial deafness or occupational deafness can be defined as the partial or complete loss of hearing as a result of working in a noisy environment. 

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 came into place to prevent employees from having to endure high levels of noise at work. The act encourages employers to provide hearing protection equipment in cases where the noise levels are above 80 dB.

Sufferers in the UK typically include those that have worked in areas such as:

  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Industrial manufacturing
  • Any other areas where workers employ the use of loud machinery

Symptoms may include ringing in the ears, a persistent struggle to hear normal conversation, sudden instances of complete hearing loss and more. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important that you visit your GP straight away.
