If you have spent an extended period of time working around loud machinery or tools, your hearing may be suffering as a result.
Industrial deafness affects many workers across the UK each year, especially those in workplaces such as construction sites, factories and other loud environments. The Noise at Work act was introduced to ensure the hearing of these employees be protected, as employers are supposed to provide adequate noise protection and several breaks throughout the day.
If you believe your employer has failed to act responsibly and their negligence has left you with hearing damage as a result, contact Accident Advice Helpline. Our personal solicitors in Gillingham can help you make a compensation claim for your work-related hearing loss if you can prove the negligence of your employer was responsible.
