We often take for granted the ability to listen and hear, and often do not do enough to protect our long term hearing, whether it be in our personal or work lives. Hearing loss can occur suddenly or gradually over time, due to exposure caused by either sudden or gradually excessively loud noises. Loss of hearing is permanent and cannot be reversed, it is therefore essential that those working in the building and construction industries are provided with the relevant training and information that will enable them to be aware of the risks and and hazards associated with excessive/loud noises in the workplace. Unfortunately it simply not possible or practical to eliminate noise from construction works, so other means of protection and noise reduction need to be considered.
