Do you think old age is the number one cause of hearing loss in America? Many of our Katy patients are surprised to learn that noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) has actually become the leading cause of hearing impairments in the U.S. In fact, NIHL is responsible for at least 25% of all cases of hearing loss in Texas. The good news is that NIHL is completely preventable by protecting your ears anytime there’s a risk of damaging your hearing.
At Today’s Hearing, we think it’s important to empower our community with the knowledge and tools necessary for hearing conservation. Protecting your ears involves more than simply wearing earplugs during exposure to loud noise. A comprehensive hearing conservation program includes a detailed case history, periodic assessment of hearing, measurement of workplace sound levels, use of professional measures, and education.
Musicians, hunters, and those who work in noisy environments—such as manufacturing facilities, construction sites, and law enforcement—will benefit from a hearing conservation program to prevent noise-induced hearing loss. We can tailor a program for groups small or large.
Is Your Company in Compliance with Federal Hearing Protection Laws?
In addition to helping community members and businesses commit to hearing protection, we offer our hearing conservation consultation services to companies concerned about worker hearing protection. Federal law has many rules and regulations pertaining to noise in the workplace, but we understand it’s not easy for every business owner to understand and implement all of these laws. If you need assistance ensuring your workplace is safe and in complete compliance, please don’t hesitate to contact our offices.
