In a new study from e Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hearing loss is the most common work-related injury. Nearly 22 million workers are exposed to dangerous levels of noise while on the job. Construction, factory, and manufacturing professions are those most likely to suffer from a hearing loss injury.
Hearing loss is a real, and troubling issue for many workers...and employers try over and over again to attempt to prove that the hearing loss is not due to the profession, but to other factors, like advanced age.
For those that work in manufacturing and construction, you know just how loud the jobsite can be. Even with protective ear coverings, the damage to one's ability to hear can be severe.
