Hearing Protection Education

Hearing Protection Education

Hearing protection is important in the workplace, a working environment with 80dB has to provide training and information, educating on the hearing protection available. 85dB is the level where action must be taken, to protect employees hearing from any permanent damage.

ProtectHear® offers toolbox talks to our customers, showing how to insert and properly fit our ear plugs, pointing out the highlights of why hearing protection should be looked after. Being able to hear your colleagues/background noise is important, especially in working areas where there communication is needed.

Noise Induced Hearing Loss is irreversible and hearing loss is found in approximately 1 in 6 people in the UK. It is important to notice the signs before it gradually gets worse.

3 types of hearing protection used are disposables, over ear defenders and custom ear plugs. One of these options must be offered by your employer if the dB level is 80 or over.

Included with our Try Before you Buy’ are toolbox talks to all our customers, this is to ensure that a trial runs smoothly educating employees on why hearing protection is important and why the trial is being undertaken.

The HSE NEC 2017 Event

The HSE NEC 2017 Event

This was the third year ProtectHear® have attended The Health and Safety Event, with its incredible foot fall of people, interesting seminars and services offered. With 6000 visitors, and 200 Exhibition Stands the Event was a busy one, held at The NEC once again. The event had been organised by Western Business Exhibitions.

Before the event we published information about ourselves on the Exhibition News page prior to the event, showing how many people do not use hearing protection appropriately and pointing out the highlights of our custom ear plugs. ProtectHear® had another busy year with people interested to know what the best quality of hearing protection, with the best comforted that is offered to employees.

ProtectHear® is unique with custom ear plugs offering the best service, education and quality product. Putting this to the test with our ‘Try Before you Buy’ offering toolbox talks during the procedure and supporting you every step. Our aim is to stop claims for Noise Induced Hearing Loss within your company, with a product that gives your employees comfortable protection throughout the working day.

Once again the Obelisk caught visitors’ eyes as they couldn’t believe how many disposable ear plugs one person uses on average over 5 years. With us being able to show them figures for ourselves, with our cost savings calculator. Our rolling PowerPoint was in the background with our graphics for the stand, to give people background on what ProtectHear® provides.

The next Health and Safety Event is going to be with The Health and Safety North in October time, keep updated on our page to see if we will be attending.
