Hear The Difference

Hearing protective equipment is widely used in a variety of industries and business’ all-over New Zealand. Your ability to hear is a crucial tool to help keep you and others safe. Ensuring you are protecting your hearing in the workplace is incredibly important, especially when you are unable to eliminate or reduce the source of noise. A lack of hearing protection could leave the wellbeing of staff in jeoprady.

However, your equipment may not be doing the job you expect it to be. If you haven't had a safety specialist involved in your purchasing process you could be using under spec'd products, uncorrectly donning or maintaining the equipment and overall, potentially risking the health and safety of all those onsite.

Hearing loss has a larger effect on New Zealand than most are aware of:
  • Hearing Loss

    In 2020 there were 46,287 active noise induced hearing loss claims

  • Financial Impact

    The estimate cost of these claims are $36,548,732

  • Business Impact

    58% of these costs are associated to productivity loss.

Using the incorrect equipment for your working environment could be putting your staff’s health at risk. Over spec’d product could mean that workers are unaware of dangerous machinery or situations around them. While an under spec’d item won’t be shielding your ears from harmful levels of noise.

Sometimes noise can’t be removed from the workplace and so staff must work with the risk still around them. In these cases, you are obligated to decide on what the most appropriate safety equipment should be used.

Deciding on what safety equipment your business needs can be a scary and difficult task. Having access to safety specialists who can provide valuable insights around products and their application is invaluable. This can help you make the best-informed decision to ensure your workers safety.
