Work-related hearing loss can have devastating effects on an employee’s physical and mental health and significantly impact an organization’s safety culture. Even work environments with relatively low noise intensity levels can cause hearing damage over time. To help prevent hearing loss in the workplace, employers must educate their workers on noise hazards and protect them from potential impacts, such as communication breakdowns and long-lasting fatigue.

Dr. Brian Taylor is the Senior Director of Audiology at Signia, a leading hearing aid manufacturer. Brian joined the show to discuss how:

Workplace conditions contribute to hearing loss

  • Extended noise exposure influences mental health and cognitive decline
  • Hearing health shapes job satisfaction and workplace turnover
  • Organizations can create safe hearing environments
  • To accommodate employees experiencing hearing loss

The Employee Safety Podcast is hosted by Peter Steinfeld, SVP of Safety Solutions at AlertMedia.
