Protection Against the Effects of Noise




Protection Against The Effects Of Noise Online E-Learning Course

Many of us take the faculty of hearing for granted, and often don’t do enough to protect our long term hearing, whether it be in our personal or professional lives. Hearing loss can occur gradually, due to excessive exposure over a period of time or immediate caused by sudden excessively loud noises. Loss of hearing is a disability and can be permanent.
