Industrial deafness is caused from exposure to loud noise whilst at work. It can also be referred to as ‘occupational deafness’. Those who work in a noisy working environment may suffer from hearing loss very quickly or it can occur over the course of many years.
If you believe you suffer from industrial deafness and you think it could have been avoided you may be entitled to claim compensation. For advice from the team of expert solicitors at AFG Law, contact us today by calling 01204 377600 or by filling in our online contact form.
There are various ways that industrial deafness can be caused:
• Short bursts of very loud noise e.g. explosions from building demolition or working near jet engines
• Continuous loud noise e.g. machinery in factories
The consequences of this can be:
• Partial hearing loss – unable to hear under a certain volume and/or struggle to hear specific sounds
• Full hearing loss
• Other hearing conditions – such as tinnitus (non-stop buzzing sound in one or both ears)
If you struggle to hear voices when there is background noise such as music or other people talking you may well have a hearing difficulty. If you cannot hear a colleague at work from 2 meters away there is a high chance the level of noise could be damaging your hearing.
