Our hearing is a huge blessing, a tremendous gift. Unfortunately, in this busy era of technology and modernism, we often forget to take care of our little blessings until they are taken away from us.

Can you imagine a life without listening to your favorite songs? Or being unable to talk to your best friend, family, or even the person sitting next to you? Waking up in the morning and missing out on the sounds of nature? The melodious chirping of birds?

Hearing Loss in Factory Workers

Researchers revealed that approximately 22 million US workers are exposed to dangerous levels of sound at their workplace, and 9 million factory workers are exposed to ototoxic chemicals every year, further damaging their hearing.

Do you know what that means? If you are regularly exposed to sound levels greater than 85 decibels for prolonged periods of time, you can be among the 22 million people suffering from hearing damage in the workplace. Under most circumstances, a noise-induced hearing loss is the single most preventable cause of deafness.

According to the latest research, a hearing loss prevalence of 42% was found among industrial workers exposed to high levels of sound in their work environment. However, this prevalence was much lower in the group of workers using protection devices, directly proportional to the worker’s compliance to use the device.

If you or your staff are experiencing any of the following signs, you should strongly consider taking the necessary precautions to prevent further hearing damage:

  • Ringing or buzzing in ears
  • Fullness in ears when leaving work
  • Difficulty in an understanding day to day conversations
  • Difficulty in hearing the TV at normal volume

These signs signify that the hair cells in your inner ear are no longer in their perfect, healthy state. Unfortunately, these tiny cells are key components in the process. Consistently wearing hearing protection aids such as earmuffs and earplugs while working in a high sound zone can make a substantial difference in preserving your health. Big Ear Inc is proud to be among the pioneers helping ensure hearing health for everyone.

Big Ear Inc earplugs are custom-made, keeping in mind the individual anatomic variations. The earplugs, designed specifically for industrial workers, not only attenuate the sound to +/- 27 ~ 32 dB, they can also incorporate special communication options, such as connection to surveillance radios.
