Despite the 2005 Noise at Work Regulations Act workers continue to suffering hearing damage.
The Noise at Work Act 2005 states that if you have been exposed to noise above 80 decibels at work your employer can be prosecuted .
In addition you can also claim compensation if it can be proved that your hearing damage was caused because you were exposed to noise above 80 decibels on a regular basis.
Proving your claim.
According to a recent Royal National Institute for the Deaf and Trades Union Congress report, some employers are still failing to protect their workers hearing.
To make a claim you will require evidence to prove your hearing has been damaged.
You are required to undergo a medical examination to find out the extent of the hearing loss, and you should seek legal advice from one of our injury solicitors.

Ex-potter Mr W is to receive a £3,000 payout from the insurers of his previous employer John Tams Group PLC.
He worked for his employer in a noisy environment for over 20 years, and during this time he was not offered ear protection. As a result of his employer’s failure to protect him at work he suffered hearing damage.
After a hearing exam confirmed the extent of the damage, solicitors were able to compile the evidence needed to prove his hearing loss was caused by exposure to noise at work and lack of safety equipment.
He was offered £3,000 in compensation for his pain and suffering.
