Hearing Loss - How to prevent?

Prevention of hearing loss - SGHNoise-induced hearing loss is usually irreversible and progresses with each exposure. People who work with heavy machinery or in the construction industry should use proper ear protection when working around loud noises, especially when working for prolonged periods. They should also undergo regular hearing tests to ensure that their hearing is not worsening.

Young people should refrain from using earphones at high volumes, and limit prolonged exposure to loud music to prevent premature damage.
