- 4 million workers go to work each day in workplaces with damaging noise.
- 10 million people in the U.S. have a noise-related hearing loss.
- 22 million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise each year.
Hearing Foundation of Canada’s Assistive Technology webpage is definitely worth a look. And for products that protect hearing, a good place to start is 3M Canada which has everything from earmuffs to noise indicators.
