Delivering and implementing effective hearing protections is oftencomplicated as most of these workers are itinerant. They suffer significant hearing loss after 15 to 20years of being subjected continually to noise from machinery, day-to-day activities, tools and traffic.Hearing loss has a dramatic impact on quality of life and also can pose safety problems on the job andoff.Hearing loss in industrial settings and construction also is completely preventable through acombination of quieter equipment, hearing conservation programs, and use of proper hearingprotection. The best way to avoid developing noise-induced hearing loss is to keep away from loud noiseas much as you can. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends that themaximum decibel exposure for unprotected ears in 8 hours is 90 decibels. For every 5-decibel increase,the exposure time is cut in half. High quality ear protection is a vital when working in noisy locationsbecause the elevated sounds can cause serious damage to the inner ears. Quality protection helps blockout most of the sounds so that the ears do not face any form of damage while getting tasksaccomplished in a noisy work environment.Advanced noise communication solutions ensuring users can communicate face-to-face, at shortdistances and long distance via two way radio and Bluetooth cell phone and other communicationsystems.
