Industrial Deafness Assessment

What is “Industrial Deafness” ? 

Industrial deafness, also known as occupational noise-induced hearing loss, is a significant health concern that arises from prolonged exposure to high levels of noise in the workplace. This condition can have far-reaching consequences on a person's quality of life, communication abilities, and overall well-being.

Causes of Industrial Deafness:

Industrial deafness primarily results from continuous exposure to loud noises in various work environments. Industries such as construction, manufacturing, mining, and entertainment are particularly prone to generating high levels of noise that can lead to hearing impairment over time. The inner ear contains delicate hair cells that help translate sound vibrations into electrical signals for the brain to process. Prolonged exposure to loud noises damages these hair cells, causing permanent hearing loss. Common sources of excessive noise in the workplace include machinery, power tools, engines, and heavy equipment.
