Hearing Loss and Tinnitus
Tinnitus is the term for the noises that people "hear" in their ears, when there is actually no outside source creating the sounds. The sounds may be soft or loud, and may sound like ringing, blowing, roaring, buzzing, hissing, humming, whistling, or sizzling. This condition is most commonly caused by prolonged exposure to loud noises, which causes permanent damage to the ears. However, single exposure to a sudden, very loud noise could also lead to tinnitus.
Hearing loss may be something that develops over time. For example, if you have been continuously exposed to high volumes of jackhammers or heavy equipment, your hearing could be affected. Hearing loss can also happen instantaneously, as the result of an explosion, or as a side effect of a work-related injury. Employees working in high-risk hearing loss environments could also develop tinnitus.
Employees who are more susceptible to tinnitus include:
- Street repair workers
