Ear & Hearing Protection
Hearing protection is required when noise is at a high level, as an employer you are required to supply your staff with the correct ear protection to help prevent any injuries. We have a great range depending on your need, ranging from basic earplugs to ear muffs. All hearing protection products are CE Approved to the relevant European Standards.
Hearing protection is equipment such as ear muffs and ear plugs that protect hearing from dangerously loud noises which may damage the ear.
Hearing protection is extremely important as loud noises can have a very dangerous impact on an eardrum, causing loss of hearing. Once hearing is lost, it is almost impossible to get it back, so if you are working in loud environments make sure you take precautions to look after your ears.
If employees ask for hearing protection, it is the job of the employer to supply them with it.
- Earmuffs, which completely cover the ear
- Earplugs, which are inserted in the ear canal
- Semi-inserts (also called 'canal caps'), which cover the entrance to the ear canal.
