Read why William Hare use the product:

William Hare is a leading global player in the steel industry with a UK head office in Bury. Around the world clients trust them for the provision of superior steel framework solutions in various industries. They are experts in oil & gas, petrochemical, pharmaceuticals, power, nuclear, civil, bridgework, airport, infrastructure, commercial and retail developments.

The company have been using ProtectHear® custom made ear plugs since 2008.

Jean Collison, who works in Health and Safety for the company said: “After undertaking a very successful trial in 2007 we selected ProtectHear® custom ear plugs for our hearing protection. Employees at all levels use the product, both in the facilities and on-site.

The product protects from factory noise but enables workers to still hear warning bells, which is critical. Although background noise is reduced, speech can still be heard, which is extremely useful.

Employees really like them as they are comfortable and perform well. Our staff appreciate the product as it is more personal and better quality compared to disposables.

Working with ProtectHear® is a really good experience. Everything is organised well and any questions are answered straight away.  They also go the extra mile by helping us promote a sensible health and safety culture internally; they have been involved in some very helpful toolbox talks which clearly state the benefits of the product to our employees when it comes to hearing protection”.

ProtectHear® is designed to offer the highest degree of comfort throughout the long life-span of five years, whilst providing an effective acoustic barrier helping to prevent Noise Induced Hearing loss (NIHL).  The custom fitted earplugs are more environmentally friendly, accurate and cost effective whencompared to disposable earplugs, millions of which are thrown away or incorrectly inserted each year. The HSE said in a report that around 40% of people who use disposables aren’t fitting them correctly. This 40% do not have the full protection they require and it could be putting them at risk of NIHL.

Operating since 2000, ProtectHear® is privately owned in Lincolnshire and has clients in many industries throughout the UK including major players such as Network Rail, Weetabix, Kellogg’s, EDF Energy and Phillips66.
