Occupational hearing loss is a common symptom of noise induced hearing loss, a condition that people can develop after over-exposure to loud noise at work.

If you are employed in a noisy environment and suffer from occupational hearing loss or other hearing loss symptoms, answer the following questions:

  • Is your hearing more muffled after work?
  • Can you hear clearer at the weekend or on holidays away from work?
  • Do you struggle to hear conversations, the television or the phone?

Answering ‘yes’ to any of the above questions could suggest that your work or working environment is the cause of your occupational hearing loss.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE OCCUPATIONAL HEARING LOSS

Occupational Hearing Loss and other Noise Induced Hearing Loss symptoms will usually start off being temporary, but can worsen and become permanent if ignored.

We would therefore recommend that you tell your employer about your hearing issues to see if any further health and safety measures could be introduced to protect your hearing at work. You should also visit your local medical practice for an official diagnosis as well as medical advice and treatment to help stop or alleviate your hearing problems.

Are your hearing loss symptoms permanent?

If you suffer from occupational hearing loss and work – or have previously worked – in a loud environment without access to the correct health and safety measures, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Roberts Jackson solicitors specialise in running claims for people with work-related conditions, so will be able to successfully build your claim for compensation on your behalf. With our legal support and guidance throughout the process, you can gain access to compensation you deserve for the impact hearing loss has had on your health and wellbeing.
