Industrial Deafness Claims
Industrial deafness, which can include Acoustic Trauma and Tinnitus, is a work-related condition caused by exposure to excessive noise, which damages cells inside the inner ear. This can lead to ringing, buzzing, hissing, whistling, and roaring sounds in one or both ears. Serious cases of industrial deafness result in complete hearing loss.
Sufferers of industrial deafness may not notice noise-induced hearing loss, which can lead to problems with conversations or other sound related activities, until years after the original exposure. This means industrial deafness is not always attributed to work and sometimes put down to the ageing process.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 act requires that employers prevent or reduce the risks to health and safety from exposure to noise at work. This includes:
- Ensuring that any hearing protection supplied is used correctly and at the correct times
- Common forms of ear protection such as ear defenders, earplugs, and semi-aural inserts should be used in upper noise level exposure circumstances.
- Workers exposed to high levels of noise should be correctly trained to use hearing protection equipment
- Hearing protectors should be properly fitted and maintained.
- Regular noise level risk assessments should be conducted in the workplace.
