Hearing injuries/loss affect all types of people in all types of jobs. Injuries frequently occur both on and off the job, and can have a dramatic effect on our ability to perform our work and function in our personal lives.
Most injuries to our hearing are "noise-related", and virtually all types of hearing injuries can result in hearing loss. While hearing injuries often do not receive the "publicity" other types of injuries get, over 10 million people in the United States currently have a measurable hearing loss.
