Hearing Safety in the Music Industry
Did you know that being around loud noise at work is a major cause of preventable hearing loss? Long exposure to loud noise can damage your hearing.
You can protect your hearing by:
- limiting the time you spend around loud noise
- wearing personal protective equipment such as earplugs or earmuffs.
Employers are required to assess noise levels in the workplace, monitor the hearing health of exposed workers and provide personal protective equipment.
Having a hearing test helps to detect the early signs of hearing loss, so we can keep our hearing healthy for longer.
You can book a hearing check, talk to a health professional, or visit www.health.gov.au/hearing for more information.
