Are you living with industrial hearing loss?
Working in loud environments can lead to noise-related hearing loss if the right safety precautions aren’t taken.
It is up to your employer to provide the right PPE (personal protective equipment), along with adequate breaks from using loud machinery and generally making sure that the hearing of staff is protected. If they fail to do this, you may find yourself paying the price with damage to your hearing.
It is common for prolonged, unprotected hearing loss to result in tinnitus, a high-pitched ringing in the ears, or a total loss of hearing in one or both ears. If you have sustained hearing damage and believe your employer to be at fault, you should be compensated for this injury.
Not only does it affect your ability to work, but full or partial deafness can alter your entire life. If you have to make adjustments, lose income and enjoy a lesser quality of life because of someone else’s negligence, make sure they are held responsible.
