I beg your pardon? If you start wearing hearing protection early on, you won’t need to ask as many questions later and you will get more out of life. You can find the right hearing protection products at KAISER+KRAFT.
Hearing protection: safe from noise
Every seventh adult in Germany experiences challenges with their hearing, and many could have prevented it. For example with our ear muffs and ear plugs. They dampen noise reliably and protect your ears from harmful frequencies.
Ears need more protection than other sensory organs
We often only start to notice just how sensitive our ears are when they are ringing or roaring. BY then, it may be too late. Even prolonged exposure to low noise levels can cause irreparable damage to our hearing. Noise levels of the sort that are commonplace in a production hall, on a building site, or during assembly.
Fortunately, it’s not hard to protect your ears. All you need is the right hearing protection.
There are different models available to purchase from KAISER+KRAFT, including:
- Ear muffs
- Clamp ear protectors
What all these types of hearing protection have in common is that they reduce the noise level. What is known as the SNR value tells you how much attenuation they provide.
Important note: hearing protection at the workplace is not up for negotiation. Employers must provide hearing protection when employees are exposed to noise levels of 80 decibels or more, and employees must use it when exposed to noise levels of 85 decibels or more.
Plugs or muffs? – Differences between types of hearing protection
Ear plugs made of polyurethane are small, comfortable to wear, and can be easily combined with other protective equipment, such as safety goggles. An ear plug station gives your employees a way to obtain hearing protection devices at any time and at short notice.
Ear muffs are ideal if the noise at the workplace is not continuous, but rather only becomes loud for short periods. Simply put them on and take them off again instead of putting plugs into your ear canal. The same applies to ear defenders.
