Noise induced hearing loss symptoms

You could notice the onset of hearing loss symptoms many months or years after exposure to noise at work. You may also find that friends and loved ones are the first to notice your symptoms. There are several common indications that you could be experiencing hearing loss:

Indicators of hearing loss

  • You frequently ask people to repeat themselves
  • Other people point out that the TV volume is too high
  • You experience difficulty in hearing ‘t’, ‘d’, and ‘s’ sounds
  • Conversation on the telephone becomes difficult or impossible
  • You become aware of a permanent ringing in your ears (tinnitus)

Noise induced hearing loss – are you at risk?

Noise induced hearing loss occurs where the sensitive hair cells inside the inner ear become damaged. This damage can be caused following a relatively short-lived exposure to excessive noise, or following a prolonged exposure to relatively low-level noise. If you are unsure whether your symptoms are linked to your past or present working conditions, we can help.

  • Is the noise level noticeable for most of your working day?
  • Are you exposed to continuous noise from impact tools or machinery?
  • Do you find that you must raise your voice to be heard while in the workplace?
  • Does your job involve the use of power tools for more than 30 minutes per day?
  • Is your hearing muffled at the end of the day (even if you recover by morning)?

Examples of occupations at risk

  • Joinery
  • Road repair
  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Plastics industry
  • Textile production
  • General factory work
  • Construction & demolition
