There are a number of different workplaces that can be found in the Breckland region. One such workplace, is a construction site.
Preventing hearing loss
As you may know, a construction site can be a potentially dangerous place. One of the main risks for those who are working in a construction site, is the risk of hearing loss, because of loud noise.
A construction site will often require the use of some very loud pieces of equipment. Those who are using these pieces of equipment, need to ensure that they’re protecting their hearing from damage.
One great way to do this, is by wearing some ear muffs. These earmuffs need to be of an industrial standard, as the wrong ones might not protect your hearing as effectively. When you are using these earmuffs, you’ll come to find that you won’t be able to hear as clearly, whilst you’ve got them on.
As a result, whilst using the earmuffs, you need to be extra vigilant of what is going on around you. Since you won’t be able to hear as well, you’ll need to keep a good visual sense of what is going on.
