The most guaranteed method of preventing occupational deafness is by reducing noise at the source by engineering methods. However, in certain workplace conditions, there is very little or nothing one can do to reduce noise at the source. In such workplaces, workers wear hearing protectors to reduce the amount of noise reaching the ears.
of hearing protection is reduced greatly if the hearing protectors do not fit
properly or if they are worn only part time during periods of noise exposure.
To maintain their effectiveness, they should not be modified. Radio headsets
should not be used as substitutes for hearing protectors and are not recommended to be worn
where hearing protectors are required to protect against exposure to noise.
