Every year more than 30 million Americans are exposed to hazardous levels of noise in their workplace. Thousands of those workers suffer from preventable hearing loss due to hazardous levels of noise and a lack of proper protection. Some even experience a permanent loss of hearing that was entirely preventable with appropriate training. Beyond damaged hearing, prolonged exposure to high levels of noise can have long term effects on employee stress and anxiety.
