The World Health Organisation says that about 50% of people who suffer from hearing loss could have avoided it. They reached this sobering conclusion after looking at studies from wealthier countries around the world.
The people most likely to suffer a Loss of Hearing which is entirely avoidable are people aged 12-35 year old, with an estimated 1.1 billion young adults and teenagers exposing themselves to unsafe levels of sound. Sadly people often realise too late when the damage to their ears is already done and hearing is something you cannot get back.
Other ways in which people suffer a loss of hearing other than aging include environmental noise, genetic conditions, infectious diseases and industrial deafness.
It is an employer’s duty to protect their workers from accidents in the workplace and this includes work-related hearing loss. A noisy workplace is often the cause of gradual loss of hearing and people who worked in factories or call centres often do not realise they could make a hearing loss compensation claim.
