More than 10% of the 8.3 million people working in the Netherlands are exposed to harmful noise levels on a daily basis. That is a huge number. Hearing damage is therefore one of the most frequently reported occupational diseases. From a sound level of 80dB (A) for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, noise is harmful and it causes permanent damage. It is therefore very important that you as a company take appropriate measures to prevent hearing damage to your employees as much as possible. Not only do your employees benefit from this, but the company also benefits.
The chance of hearing damage occurs in many professions. We often think of jobs in construction, road construction, industry and transport. But also in occupations that are not immediately obvious, the risk of harmful noise is present. Just think of jobs in large kitchens of hospitals and institutions, schools and nurseries and professions in recreation and services. We from seeh. are of the opinion that you can not be too careful and do not have to take unnecessary risks. Before it’s too late. You simply need customized ear plugs.
Earplugs protect against harmful noise levels
According to the Working Conditions Act, you – as an employer – are obliged to offer professional hearing protection (such as earplugs) to employees who are exposed to noise levels above 80 dB (A). With a daily exposure above 85dB (A), an employee is obliged to wear ear protection at work. Above 87dB (A), measured in the ear while the hearing protection is worn, measures must be taken immediately to bring the sound level below the limit value. As an employer, you are responsible for complying with these rules and making the well-being of your employees a priority.
In addition, your staff must be adequately informed about the risks of harmful noise levels and employees are entitled to a hearing test to determine whether the affected measures are adequate. Do they get the best customized hearing protection?
