Good to know
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations of 2005 requires employers to make sure workers are protected from excessive noise at the workplace. Hearing protection devices must be provided in areas where noise levels reach 85dB, be it daily or weekly average exposure. However, with the huge number of hearing protection devices available in the market today, choosing the appropriate ones can be a task in itself.
Here are some things that can help you pick the right hearing protection devices:
1. Seal – Choose devices that provide a good seal. Sound reduction mainly depends on blocking any air leakage that lets sound bypass the device and enter the ear. Whether the hearing protector is over-the-ear or in-ear, make sure that it seals tight enough for effective sound reduction.
2. Fit – Any hearing protector is pointless if it doesn't fit properly, good seal or no. This is where formable or foam ear plugs take the spotlight since such devices expand to fill the ear canal, thus lending a good seal and an equally good fit.
3. Comfort – Uncomfortable hearing protectors can be a problem if they must be worn consistently and for long periods. Select hearing devices that are made of soft material, and which can be placed and removed conveniently.
Also, take note that each type of hearing protector has its own protection level. Ear muffs shield against extremely loud noises, while ear plugs are best worn only when dealing with moderate noise levels. Ear caps are available as well, but they offer less protection than ear muffs and plugs and are not recommended when serious hearing protection is necessary.
