Occupational Deafness

If you suffer damage to your hearing as a result of exposure to noise at work, you may be able to claim compensation. Your employer has a legal duty to protect your hearing from excessive levels of noise by providing you with adequate ear protection in noisy environments

Exposure to high levels of noise can cause deafness and/or tinnitus, which is the condition of experiencing noises in the ears or head with no external source.

Am I at risk or damage to my hearing at work?

There are several work environments in which you would be at the most risk of suffering from deafness or tinnitus. These include:

  • Heavy industry such as metal work, stone cutting, drilling and quarrying
  • Industries which use noisy machinery such as textiles, printing, wood cutting, transportation and agriculture
  • Production line workers
  • Machine tool operatives
  • Call centre operatives
  • Armed forces
