WORKING IN NOISY ENVIRONMENT
Working in a noisy environment can be harmful to your hearing if you are not properly protected. The recommended noise exposure level is below 85 decibels (dB) for eight hours, with breaks in between to give your ears a rest.
Hearing loss can occur from long-term exposure to loud noise because it damages the tiny hair cells in your inner ear that transmit sound to your brain. This damage can lead to permanent hearing loss, making it difficult for you to hear and communicate. Loud noise can also have other negative effects on your health, such as stress, fatigue, and sleep disturbance.
Protect your hearing from noisy workplace
To protect yourself from loud noise and prevent hearing loss, it is important to use earplugs and earmuffs in the workplace. At QSS, we offer a wide selection of earplugs and earmuffs and even provide EarFit testing to ensure maximum protection for your hearing. Investing in ear protection not only helps prevent hearing loss but also improves your productivity on the job.
