Protect Your Hearing Month
October Is National Protect Your Hearing Month. We want to stress the importance of protecting your hearing in the workplace.
Here are a few tips for preventing hearing loss in the workplace:
– Wear hearing protection including properly fitted earplugs or earmuffs when needed.
– Reduce your noise exposure by regularly taking breaks from the sound source.
– See an audiologist, who can help you find earplugs that fit comfortably and are effective, and who can assess your hearing and talk to you about your risk factors and options.
Remember to work safely, and that includes protecting your hearing.
