Hearing Loss

Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can have either a temporary or permanent effect on individuals. The main causes of hearing loss are excessive noise, aging or injury. Over 360 million of the world’s population have disabling hearing loss. It can also affect in Adults balance, mental health and risk of dementia. There are 4 types of hearing loss which are Auditory Processing Disorders, Conductive Hearing Loss, Sensorineural and mixed.

The signs to watch out for could be difficulty in hearing people clearly, listening to music at a high volume, having to focus on what people are saying and repetition of conversations. Using ear protection in a work or a social situation would be a solution to protecting your hearing from further damage. Also not inserting anything into the ears as this could make the loss worse. If any of the discussed applies then it is recommended to see a GP to see what they can advise.

Hearing aids can treat up to 95% of people that have hearing loss, if hearing aids aren’t appropriate then implants can be inserted into the ear. Alternatively if the hearing loss is too severe then sign language or lip reading may need adopting.

The Health and Safety Event 2018

The Health and Safety Event 2018

The Health and Safety Event was held once again at the NEC in Birmingham, this was the fourth time ProtectHear® has exhibited. The show entails 48 Conference and Seminar sessions, 45 engaging speakers, with 200 Exhibition stands and a footfall of over 6000 visitors. The event was organised by Western Business Exhibitions.

ProtectHear® was showcasing the products/services of the company to visitors with samples, communication accessories and brochures. Some companies are not aware of the great benefits in both protection and cost savings on ProtectHear® ear plugs. Our cost saving calculator helped people realise how much you can save with custom ear plugs over a 5 year period. Also illustrating this we had the disposable obelisk, which shows how many disposable ear plugs you’re using over the 5 year period, which is concerning considering the landfill.

Noise Induced Hearing Loss affects many people in the UK, getting the guaranteed protection is so important, especially as a report from the HSE shows that 60% of users don’t actually fit disposables correctly! It is also important to be protected but not over protected; this is why our ear plug has a vented system, allowing communication between employees, but ensuring you’re not over protected.

Our ‘Try Before you Buy’ is offered to companies to give them a chance of trialling up to 10 pairs over an 8 week period, with no obligation to buy. We have great confidence in our product and can even trial communication accessories alongside. This is supported by a toolbox talk.

ProtectHear® will be attending the Health and Safety North in October; you can keep updated on the Health and Safety Events website.

What are the losses?

We find that losses of our ear plugs are around 2-3% per year. The original impressions are held for 5 years on file, so we can manufacture replacements. The losses are generally reducing, due to ProtectHear® educating the workforce with Toolbox Talks on our ear plugs.

Toolbox Talks are a great way of explaining to users how to fit, maintain and retain the ear plugs. Our pouch is equipped with a belt clip, so the user can keep the product on them at all times. You wouldn’t lose your phone, keys or wallet would you? So why would you lose our ear plugs! They are personalised to you and your company is giving you the opportunity to have the best quality hearing protection. The ear plugs being unique give users a sense of ownership.

We are happy to give companies a chance to trial our product with a sample of employees over an 8 week period, to show our commitment and confidence in the product. Supporting toolbox talks at the start of the trial, to take the first steps in the right direction.
