Noise-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.
