Hearing Loss Claims
The Safety Health and Welfare at Work Regulations provide for maximum daily noise exposure levels. The average exposure limit is 80 db. Employers are under a legal duty to carry out risk assessments measuring the levels of noise to which the employer’s employees are exposed.
Employer’s duty at avoiding a reducing noise exposure
Under the Regulations employers have to ensure that the risk arising from exposure to noise is either eliminated at source or reduced to a minimum.
Employers have to provide personal protective equipment and ensure that individual hearing protectors are provided to each employee to eliminate the risk to hearing or reduce the risk to a minimum.
A noisy working environment can cause serious hearing problems which can affect your daily life.
If you have developed hearing loss after working in a noisy working environment and your employers did not protect you from that risk then you could make a claim for compensation. You can either make a claim against them now or if you have not worked for them for a number of years as long as you have been diagnosed with occupational noise injury in the past two years.
