What is industrial deafness?
Industrial deafness is otherwise known as noise induced hearing loss. If you have been exposed to high levels of noise in your work environment, then this may cause damage to your ears, resulting in hearing loss.
It may be that the level of damage to your hearing is not noticeable until you get older, as most of us start to experience hearing loss as part of the ageing process. The combined effect of age-related hearing loss and noise-induced hearing loss can cause you to experience symptoms of deafness sooner than you otherwise would have done.
