Hearing Loss Claims in The Work Place & Preventative Ways to Minimize Noise Exposure

Hearing loss remains a significant problem in certain noisy industries. In particular, federal data shows the average rate of job-related hearing loss among private-sector employees has steadily declined in recent years. That trend may reflect the exclusion of certain industries from the calculation, or it could be a sign that ongoing efforts to reduce excessive noise exposure, train workers about the dangers of high levels of noise, and provide them with hearing protection.

Noisy work environments can cause hearing loss that is compensable under state and federal workers’ compensation laws.

Preventing or minimizing noise exposure, of course, is the best way to reduce rates of hearing loss and presumably, the claims it generates.
