    Mr P worked in an exceptionally noisy environment on a daily basis. His employer offered him no protection from the noise, and the only respite he had was a short lunch break in the middle of the day. He was not provided with any information about the potential risks associated with working in such an environment.

    When he noticed that his hearing was deteriorating he made an appointment with his GP who ran various tests, and established that his hearing had been adversely affected. The GP was under the impression it could be as a result of his job, and Mr P therefore decided to speak to a Accident Advice Helpline, to find out if he was entitled to make a claim.

    Mr P’s expert legal representation in Herefordshire referred him for an independent medical assessment.  The medical expert took details of the nature of his work and looked through his medical records. This established that his condition was consistent with the level of exposure he had received. It was concluded that the work environment had caused his hearing loss.

    Mr P’s injury lawyer suggested that the employer should have provided Mr P with personal protection equipment in the form of ear plugs, or head gear to ensure that he was suitably protected from the loud noise. Failure to do this meant Mr P was put at risk by his employer.
