Noise Protection

Lose the noise not your hearing

When should I wear hearing protection?
If you are exposed to excessively noisy environments (80 dB or more), you should wear hearing protectors. You should also wear them when you are using power tools, noisy yard equipment, or firearms. The table below shows how easy it is to exceed maximum exposure levels.

Level of noise in dB(A) Maximum daily exposure time
85 8 hours
91> 2 hours
97 30 minutes
103 7 minutes

Being exposed to noise can also cause fatigue and irritability. Some noise level examples (estimates)

Noise level Unprotected Protected
60dB Speech Unlimited Unlimited
70dB Office Unlimited Unlimited
85dB Busy traffic 8 hours Unlimited
91dB Pub 2 hours 64 hours
100dB Factory 15 minutes 8 hours
106dB Nightclub 4 minutes 2 hours

I am completely satisfied with the service I have received from Monmouthshire Hearing Centre. Helen has been extremely helpful, and has gone to a lot of trouble, to ensure I get the best out of my hearing aids.

I did not purchase my hearing aid from you – I do see you for regular checks and am very happy with the service I received. When my aid is due for replacement I will definitely use you.
