What is industrial deafness?
Sometimes called occupational deafness, this condition onsets following continued work in loud environments.
Industrial deafness is more likely in certain workplaces, such as factories and construction sites, and can be temporary or permanent depending on the severity. Loud machines, tools and equipment can all cause hearing damage, and the Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005) were implemented to protect workers. Though this legislation exists, if employers fail to adhere to it, innocent employees can suffer the consequences.
If you have discovered you have hearing loss and believe it to be directly correlated to your working conditions, contact Accident Advice Helpline. Depending on the circumstances, you could be within your legal rights to make a personal injury accident claim in Northamptonshire, and you could potentially recover thousands of pounds in compensation.
