Hearing Protection

Hearing Protection

Certain occupations and hobbies can cause hearing loss if you are not using appropriate hearing protection. Hearing loss caused by loud noises can be permanent. It’s important to protect your hearing when you are exposed to noises over 80 dB. The louder the sound is, the faster hearing loss will occur with the same exposure. Some common sounds that are louder than 80 dB include:

  • Gunshots – 140 dB
  • Sirens – 120 dB
  • Concerts – 110 dB
  • Bars – 105 to 110 dB
  • Sporting events – 100 dB
  • Motorcycle – 95 dB
  • Hairdryer – 85 dB
  • Lawnmowers & Leafblowers – 80 to 85 dB
