Employers

Each employer must show that reasonable action has been taken by them to decrease the noise levels where any noise have been assessed as excessive. Where an employer cannot restrict the noise levels they must offer hearing protection devices.

As a result of employers ignoring or failing to follow the Government issued guidelines this has resulted in many employees suffering with industrial deafness. Therefore, if you believe that you have suffered hearing loss and were exposed to noise during the course of your employment then you may be entitled to receive industrial deafness compensation for your injuries.
