Exposure to loud noise such as that produced while using a welder can cause damage to the sensory hearing cells in the ears.
Many tools used in noisy industries emit sound at a volume above 90 decibels.
You may be experiencing noise induced hearing loss if
- You find it difficult to hear high pitched sounds such as the chirping of a bird.
- You experience a ringing or buzzing in your ears or head.
- You have a hard time understanding words, especially in environments with lots of background noise such a restaurant.
- You are often asked to turn the TV or Radio down.
