Hearing Protection: From Apps to Earplugs

Even a low level of noise can be hazardous to the human ear and noise exposure can have serious health consequences, ranging from hearing loss and tinnitus to hypertension, ischemic heart disease, annoyance and sleep disturbance. Earplugs and other devices can reduce and even eliminate noise exposure, and there are now apps to measure the noise level and obtain recommendations on appropriate hearing protection.

Let’s start with the good news: “When it comes to the damage a person can suffer from a noisy workplace, there has been an increasing awareness recently,” says Manfred Schuster, head of hearing protection at Uvex.

Joao Rosario, an application engineer in the Personal Safety Division of the multi-technology group 3M, said he believes that this is important because “although medicine has made amazing progress in the treatment of hearing damage in recent years, it’s impossible to eliminate all hearing problems.”

Hearing loss can start at a relatively low noise level of 85 decibels. This is because noise is cumulative, so that even low-level noise can add up to a dangerous total. The pain threshold starts at around 120 decibels. If the noise level is very high, it can damage a person’s hearing within a very short time.
