What’s Industrial Deafness?


Industrial deafness is the loss of hearing as a result of working in a noisy environment. It can affect anyone regardless of age and its severity can depend on the length of time and the level of the noise you’ve been exposed to. Industrial Deafness occurs more in certain occupations such as working in the building industry or in a factory environment but it can happen to anyone. Industrial Deafness can be caused by:

  • Being exposed to a loud noise causing deafness for a few hours after exposure
  • Prolonged exposure to loud industrial noise over a period of time
  • Poor health & safety measures in the workplace
  • Working in the armed forces
  • Working in loud industrial environments
