Sometimes we don’t even realize our hearing is at jeopardy, especially when we are distracted by work. You should always be on the listen for noise that can potentially lead to hearing loss.
Carry earplugs and use them whenever you encounter construction or irritants like vacuum cleaners or fire-alarm tests. Or if it is really bad, take the necessary steps and talk to your employer about it. Not only can noise at work damage your hearing it can also increase other health risks and lower your motivation.
