Protecting your hearing 

Surprisingly, common everyday activities can have a detrimental effect on your hearing health

Are you taking care of your hearing?
Do you think you're taking care of your hearing? You may not realise that many everyday activities can affect the quality of your hearing. These can include: 

  • Driving continuously with the window open - or suffer other noisy activity - without considering the effect on your hearing
  •  If you are engaged in sports such as clay pigeon shooting, car racing or any other sports that involve high volume levels for a significant amount of time
  • If you work in machinery, you could also be at risk of developing a hearing loss early on. 
  • Listening to music through headphones or earphones can also have a significant impact on developing a hearing loss due to the length of time and the close range that the noise is from your ears.

Looking after your hearing

You only have two ears and it is important to take good care of them. Here are a list of topics you may consider:

  • Defense against industrial noise damage without protection
  • Avoiding damage through loud live or recorded music
  • Avoiding overuse of home electricals without ear protection
  • Awareness of noise damage caused by everyday activities, including leisure
  • Regular monitoring of your natural hearing through regular assessments (see below)
  • Earwax management and daily ear hygiene
  • If you swim, avoid water in the ear
  • Smoking - including other drug-related (including prescription drugs) that may cause tinnitus or hearing loss
  • Consult your GP if you suddenly experience hearing loss
