Reimbursement by employer
Many employees are exposed to harmful noise levels every day. As an employee you do not want permanent hearing damage due to your work and also as an organisation you do not want your employees unnecessarily at risk. According to the Working Condition Act you are even obliged to offer professional hearing protection (such as otoplastics) to employees who are exposed to harmful noise levels. But what about the right to otoplastics and the reimbursement of this?
In the context of noise exposure and the prevention of hearing damage, hearing protection must be made available to employees from an exposure of 80dB(A). This means that hearing protection from 80dB (A) is reimbursed by the employer. The compensation for hearing protection is ‘paid’ in the form of, for example, otoplastics. It’s that simple.
OTOPLASTICS REIMBURSEMENT AND COMPULSORY USAGE FOR EMPLOYEES
From 85 dB(A), employees and employers are not only required to be provided with a reimbursement for hearing protection, but there is also a compulsary usage for the provided means. This should also be supervised by the employer.
