Thousands of workers throughout the United Kingdom experience hearing problems as a result of being exposed to continuous loud noises on production lines, in factory warehouses or whilst working with heavy equipment like hydraulic presses.
Employers must take action to protect workers hearing under the “Noise At Work Act 1989” regulations. Those employed in a noisy workplace such as manufacturing, construction, airfields or nightclubs should make sure that all the measures and protection are in place to lower such a risk. When the noisy environment reaches 80 dB, the employer is liable to take action. Employees who’ve developed hearing loss whilst working in a noisy environment without any protection may be entitled to make a claim for hearing loss compensation.
