Prevent hearing loss before it impacts you or a loved one
If you still have normal hearing, you can fortunately still help prevent hearing loss. Using hearing protection, such as ear plugs, moulds or ear-muffs can help prevent loss of hearing when you know you will be exposed to loud sounds, such as:
Garden tools like lawn mowers and leaf blowers
Work-related exposure, including factories, construction sites and even schools
Ear plugs or ear-muffs can give your ears protection and should be worn to help avoid the possibility of damage to your hearing.
Excessively loud everyday sounds, both at home and at work, can pose a risk to a person’s hearing, so it can be a good idea to invest in hearing protection. Avoiding loud sounds and reducing the amount of time one is exposed to everyday sounds may be helpful as well.
