Noise induced hearing loss reflects a partial loss of hearing over and above everyone’s natural loss though age which has been caused by exposure to loud noise at work. Often it is associated with whistling or buzzing in your ears called Tinnitus which can affect concentration and disturb your sleep. In some cases your hearing can become sensitive to certain sounds such as a Hoover which becomes painful to listen to. This is called Hyperacusis.
Risk of negligence
Whilst tinnitus and hyperacusis are usually easier to spot, it can be difficult to determine whether your hearing has started to deteriorate because of noise. Noise can often affect your hearing slowly over a long time by making it difficult for you to hear people speaking clearly, especially when there is background noise such as in a pub. Alternatively, you may find that you have your TV switched on too loud for others to listen comfortably or that you miss the phone ringing even when others hear it.
