What is occupational deafness?

Also termed industrial hearing loss, occupational deafness refers to ‘either damage to or loss of hearing as a direct result of working conditions’. Employees working in loud environments such as factories and construction sites need to be equipped with the correct type of personal protective equipment, or PPE, to prevent the risk of hearing damage. Employers are responsible for the provision of this equipment, along with adequate breaks to reduce the risk of hearing loss. If they fail to do this, employees can suffer anything from tinnitus to permanent hearing loss as a result.

Who can make a claim for occupational deafness?

The law states that you are entitled to make a compensation claim for an injury or illness that has been caused by the negligence of another party. If you can prove that your employer was responsible for the onset of your hearing loss and that you were in no way to blame, Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a compensation claim.
