If you operate in an environment where your hearing is at risk, hearing protection is a must-have piece of PPE. Employers should assess and give hearing protection to employees when additional ear protection is required, guaranteeing optimal workplace safety. When there is a chance of hearing loss, hearing protection should be worn. Loud noise or prolonged exposure to noise that cannot be minimised falls under this category. For example, construction site noise is frequently high, and excessive noise can cause hearing loss. If the noise level exceeds 85 dB, hearing protection must be given. PPE Stores has a large selection of hearing protection.
