Damaging Decibels: Tips To Prevent Hearing Loss

It may be one of the biggest health issues in the world, but few think seriously about hearing loss until it’s too late. Approximately 360 million people around the globe suffer from it, and those numbers have risen sharply over the last decade. That could be attributed to the popularity of personal media players, which often include earphones that fit directly into the ear canal. Because they’re pressed against the eardrum, loud music and sounds have an even greater impact on hearing. This is especially true in younger people. However, everyone must be aware of how to protect his or her ears.

Most workers in a construction or industrial environment understand the need for hardhats and other protective gear. Yet fewer know how important it is to wear earplugs or earmuffs to dampen dangerous sounds. Given how much noise these workers may be exposed to while on the job, taking preventative steps can make all the difference for them later in life. Guarding against hearing loss may also be beneficial in preventing dementia in the elderly, according to studies. The following infographic displays some additional information to help prevent hearing loss provided by Premier Safety.
