Our ability to hear is important to us in many ways. By far the most important aspect of our hearing is the ability it gives us to hear other people speak.

This program covers: Causes of Hearing Loss, Noise Induced Hearing Loss – The basic facts, Noise Induced Hearing Loss – What damage is done to the ear, Basic Facts about Sound and Noise, The Hearing Test & Audiogram, Noise Control Measures, Hearing Protection. Poor hearing can dramatically change your lifestyle. It can lead to misunderstandings and give other people an impression of rudeness or even a lack of intelligence. It can make you more vulnerable to accidents and injuries, limit employment opportunities and lead to social isolation. This program strongly reinforces the fact that once hearing is damaged, it cannot be repaired. However, the program also reinforces that Noise Induced Hearing Loss is preventable.
