The insurance industry is currently gearing up for what many believe may be the new growth area in compensation claims – hearing problems from call centre workers. There is no question that call centres are big business in the UK many of us have either worked in one or know someone that has. Problems can occur if the equipment is not up to the necessary safety standards or if it is not maintained correctly.
Call Centre Hearing Loss
One of the main problems encountered by call centre workers in relation to their hearing occurs when feedback is transmitted into their headsets of if volume controls are not in place so that the noise is simply too loud. Over time this can lead to industrial deafness but more frequently the damage is instant caused by what is known as acoustic shock.
Both industrial deafness and acoustic shock can not only impair hearing itself but can also bring on tinnitus, a buzzing or ringing in the ears. Although it may not sound too serious tinnitus can and does have a major impact upon peoples lives even to the extent that they are unable to sleep as they cannot block out the buzzing.
There are aids to help overcome, or at least cope with, the tinnitus but they do not come cheap. Our personal injury solicitors will not only look to recover compensation for your call centre hearing problems but if appropriate will also seek additional monies so you can purchase the aids you need to manage the problem.
If you have worked in a call centre, even if it was only for a short period, and you think you have suffered either hearing problems or tinnitus as a result contact us now to see if we can help you bring a compensation claim.
