    Injured at work in West Bromwich

    What to do after being injured at work in West Bromwich

    There are certain types of jobs which are more likely to affect your hearing if you are not careful. Anywhere that you work in a loud environment, such as bars and clubs, concert venues and even building sites, can affect your hearing. If you work closely with a very loud piece of machinery then this can affect your hearing as well.

    Your employer is supposed to do everything that they can to ensure that your hearing is not affected by your job, and if you do think that there is something wrong with your hearing as a result of your job you need to do something about it right away.

    • Tell your employer. If you feel that your hearing is starting to get worse because of your job, and you are doing everything that you should or wearing any equipment that you should be, you should tell your employer that you are worried about your hearing and see if there is anything that they can do.
    • Wear protective equipment. Ear plugs are a very simple and very easy way to protect your hearing, don’t really cost anything and offer you a huge amount of protection from permanent damage. In some professions you can also be provided with larger ear protectors, which drown out even more sound.
    • See your doctor. If your doctor can take a look at your hearing and let you know whether or not they believe that your hearing is being badly affected by your job, you will have some proof to take to your employer, so that they have to do something about it or risk having to pay out on a compensation claim for you.
    • Take lots of breaks. At the very least, taking lots of breaks or moving around a lot so that you aren’t constantly exposed to loud noises may help to put off any further damage to your hearing.

    Making a personal injury claim

    If your hearing has been permanently affected by your job, and all because your employer hasn’t taken the right precautions to protect employees against hearing loss, you should think about making a personal injury claim in West Bromwich. Not only will an injury claim in West Bromwich help you to deal with the situation more easily, and provide you with financial compensation that you can use to get on with your life, it should also push your employer to tighten up their rules and regulations and protect other employees in the future.
