Why you Need Hearing Protection at Work
Excessive noise can damage a person’s ear especially after a prolonged period of exposure. According to OSHA, a significant number of workers suffer from temporary and permanent hearing loss caused by constant exposure to noise. To combat the problem, OSHA set guidelines and allowable limit of 90 dBA per 8 hour work day. But there are work conditions where noise higher than 90dBA is simply unavoidable, and that’s where hearing protection like earplugs and earmuffs come in.Earplugs vs. Ear Muffs
Each type of ear protectors has its own advantages and disadvantages. Earplugs
are more portable and convenient to use in confined spaces, but it can also be uncomfortable unlike cushioned earmuffs. Earmuffs, on the other hand, are bulkier and may get it the way of safety or prescription glasses. But between the two, earmuffs are more comfortable especially for long term use. Combining earplugs and earmuffs is a great solution for extreme noise so you can actually choose both. It all depends on the type of work that you do.Seton's Hearing Protection Products
