The Health and safety Executive has released video and audio files that demonstrate the effects of hearing loss. Noise induced hearing loss is irreversible damage to the ears caused by exposure to high levels of noise. These recordings demonstrate how hearing is gradually lost over a working life. In the demonstrations you will hear the effects of both noise exposure and ageing on hearing. The files are also useful for demonstrating the effects of hearing loss as part of an employee training programme.
They can be reviewed directly on the HSE website or downloaded and saved to computer to review later:
