A study published by peer-reviewed medical journal SLEEP found that individuals with a work-related, noise-induced hearing loss were likely to experience insomnia and sleep impairment, despite their age or years of noise exposure.
This scenario creates potential safety risks for the individual experiencing the hearing loss and their coworkers alike, where a hearing loss creates a lack of sleep, and a lack of sleep creates mental and physical exhaustion, thereby setting the stage for a hazardous work environment. This course of events is entirely preventable. And it starts with custom hearing protection.
Do you or a loved one work in noisy conditions? If so, a small investment in custom hearing protection, fit by a certified audiologist, can foster a lifetime of better hearing, giving you a stronger means of communication at home and a safer environment at work.
