Written below are the most common ways to prevent hearing loss in an industrial setting by:
· Wearing hearing protective equipment such as ear plugs or ear muffs.
· Maintaining and checking hearing protectors for signs of “wear and tear.”
· Having your hearing regularly tested.
· Lessening the amount of time spent in areas where the sound is greater than 85 decibels.
· Turning down loud music, and minimizing exposure to loud noise-producing machinery.
