Good to know

Different industries require different types of hearing protection. Food manufacturing industries for example are known for their hot and dusty conditions that made hearing protector use difficult and uncomfortable. In this case, earplugs were generally preferred compared to earmuffs because the latter were difficult to keep clean and uncomfortable because of the sweat it generates around the ears.
Hygiene was the main factor affecting the choice of hearing protection for food industries. Disposable corded earplugs with metal tracers were the ideal choice because of their feature that can be easily detected should the earplugs enter food products.
The colour of earplugs helps improve the detectability as most are designed with high visibility colours to differentiate them from natural food colours.
Selecting the right type of hearing protection also depends on the level of attenuation it offers as different types of food industries have various levels of hazardous noise emissions. Bakery, dairy and confectionary industries produce noise levels from 85dB – 95dB while milling, drink production and meat industries propagates noise levels up to 100dB.
