Accident Advice Helpline – the Injury Solicitors that Halesworth residents use
Accident Advice Helpline, the injury solicitors that Halesworth town-folk sometimes use, are experts with industrial injury claims, particularly cases of industrial deafness. Whilst most people are aware of the necessity to wear ear defenders in a noisy environment, it is the understanding of what is, and isn’t, a noisy environment that is often the culprit. It is therefore the business owner’s responsibility to ensure that the working environment is tested to ascertain whether the presence of industrial noise poses any threats to employees’ hearing. It’s all part of an employer’s duty of care toward their staff.
Industrial deafness is sometimes referred to as occupational deafness, or noise induced hearing loss. However it’s referred to, it’s a condition which results in loss of hearing, sometimes over a prolonged period of time, due to the working environment. Any loss of hearing can be either temporary, or permanent. It can also include such conditions as Tinnitus, or Acoustic Shock Syndrome. Industrial deafness is unfortunately quite prevalent in industry and the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 is the legislation that has been put into place in an effort to control noisy working environments.
