Thousands of mechanics and technicians across the United Kingdom experience hearing problems due to being exposed to loud noises in the garage or workshop they work in.
Garage owners, service managers and employers need to take action to safeguard workers hearing under the “Noise At Work Act 1989” . Those working in a loud environment such as in a car garage, service centre, bodyshop workshop or car production line must ensure that all the measures and protection are in place to reduce such a risk. When the loud environment reaches 80 dB, the employer is liable to take action. Employees who have developed hearing problems whilst working in a noisy workplace without ear protection may be entitled to make a claim for hearing loss compensation.
