Noise-induced Hearing Loss

Noise is one of the leading causes of hearing loss. Noise-induced hearing loss generally occurs gradually over time and goes virtually unnoticed until it is too late.
Noise-induced hearing loss is permanent and irreversible; no medical treatment, no surgery, not even a hearing aid can restore your hearing (a hearing aid is an assistive device – not a cure).
However, noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented and further damage to your hearing can be avoided even if some noise-induced hearing loss is experienced.
Industrial Audiometric Screening aims to reduce or eliminate NIHL in the workplace. What happens outside the workplace can be equally as hazardous, and it is up to each individual to look after his/her own hearing.
Listen to the warning while you still can, you only have one pair of ears!
