Why Hearing Protection Is a Must
Whether you are on a building site, demolition site or operating machinery, hearing protection such as safety earmuffs and safety earplugs is a must. Our hearing should not be taken for granted, that’s why we stock plenty of high-quality products that will help you stay protected.
At Southland, we know how dangerous loud noise can be, and we do our best to offer a wide range of hearing protection PPE, including Class 5 safety earplugs and earmuffs.
What Are the Consequences of Being Exposed to Loud Noise and Not Wearing the Right Hearing Protection?
Noise-induced hearing loss occurs over time and most people who suffer from it do not know it until it is too late. This common work injury can, and it should be prevented, and we are here to help you do that.
Being exposed to loud noise daily or very often and without wearing any protection can have damaging consequences such as:
- Temporary or permanent hearing loss
- Limited ability to understand speech
- Not being able to communicate
- Reduced productivity
- Social isolation
The Importance of Hearing Protection in the Workplace
The best protection we can provide is to eliminate the hazard, by eliminating the need to work with the tools or in the environments that create these noise exposures. Realistically, though, this is not always possible, which is why hearing protection PPE is so important, especially in particularly loud workplaces such as construction sites and steel mills.
With over 30 years of experience in the PPE industry, and partnerships with most leading manufacturers, Southland make no compromises when it comes to the quality of our products, so you can rest assured you are getting the best solution for your individual needs.
