If you think that your tinnitus has been caused by working in an excessively loud environment such as a factory, nightclub or construction site, you may be entitled to claim for compensation, but only if you can prove that your employer is responsible for causing the condition.
IS MY TINNITUS CAUSED BY WORK?
Tinnitus is a symptom of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) which is a condition that is acquired through excessive noise exposure. Many people suffer from a form of tinnitus, especially later in life. This means that many people do not associate their tinnitus with their old workplace and instead blame it on everyday activities. If you have worked in a noisy environment in the past it is most likely that your tinnitus is a result of the noise exposure, this can be due to a number of factors such as lack of protection or time spent operating machinery.
