Long-term exposure to loud noises can lead to a permanent loss of hearing, no matter your age. If you have to raise your voice or shout in order to be heard at your workplace, then you’re definitely working in a noisy environment.Fortunately, Hearing & Audiology has developed earplugs that can help you prevent hearing loss or mitigate the effects of working in a noisy environment, with options to adjust their protection according to the level of sound to which you’re most often exposed.
Custom Earplug Designs
We can design earplugs for the following needs:
- Noise (i.e., industrial, shooting, motorcycle riding)
- Musicians (i.e., concert performances, stage shows)
- Swimming (for amateur and professional athletes)
Our in-house design team can fashion a set of custom earplugs for every shape and size, using trusted international brands as our model. We can fit them to the shape of your ear, so that you can wear them all day without irritation or discomfort. It’s also important to remember that earplugs reduce the level of noise without cancelling it entirely, so you won’t be able to block out someone talking or snoring.
How Do I Know If I Need Earplugs at Work?
To find out if your workplace is noisy enough to require earplugs, WorkCover WA has set standard at a decibel level of 90 dbA for 8 hours or more. You can find more information at their official website.
