SECTION 1

All sound is noise, but the noise we are considering in this programme is noise that might damage your hearing. And noise doesn’t always have the same effect. It depends on how loud it is, how often you hear it and how long it goes on for. This section explains how your ears work to help you understand how easy it is to damage them and it looks at the damage that can be done. It also tells you what to look out for to recognise the first signs of hearing loss.

SECTION 2

In this section we look at how noise is measured, at what level it becomes damaging and what must be done when it reaches this point. We also look at noise limits, hearing tests and who is responsible for protecting your hearing.

SECTION 3

Hearing protection can help to protect your ears by reducing noise by around 15 to 32dB, depending on the type of protection. You should know how to check the general condition and cleanliness of any ear protection you use and you should check that no modifications have been mad There are many different types of hearing protection available. In this section we look at the options and when you should wear protection.
