October is National Protect your Hearing Month

Please help us spread the word: Noise induced hearing loss is permanent

With cooler weather approaching there will be more activities to engage in like the Alliance Airshow, spooky haunted houses, and concert venues. While this can be a fun family outing, It is important to remember to take precautions to protect your hearing as well as your children's hearing.

Here are our five top ways to protect your hearing.

1.) Use earplugs

The louder the noise and the longer you're exposed to it, the greater the chance of damaging your hearing. Protect your ears with ear protectors – earplugs or earmuffs – and get away from the noise as quickly or as often as you can.

2.) Turn down that dial

Turn down the volume on your TV, radio or hi-fi a notch. Even a small reduction in volume can make a big difference to the risk of damage to your hearing. If you need to raise your voice to be heard above the sound, turn it down.

3.) Be careful in the car

Listening to music in a confined space increases the risk of hearing damage.

4.) Don't put up with work noise

If you're experiencing noise at work, talk to your human resources (HR) department or your manager and ask for advice on reducing the noise and getting hearing protection.

5.) Have a hearing detox

Give your ears time to recover after they've been exposed to loud noise. According to Action on Hearing Loss, you need at least 16 hours of rest for your ears to recover after spending around two hours in 100dB sound, for example in a concert or air show. Reducing this recovery time increases the risk of permanent deafness.
