New! Hearing Protectors for a Noisy Planet fact sheet
To reduce your risk of hearing loss, Noisy Planet suggests three actions you can take:
- Lower the volume.
- Move away from the noise.
- Wear hearing protectors, such as earplugs or earmuffs.
When you aren’t able to control the volume or move away from the noise, hearing protectors, such as earplugs or protective earmuffs, can help. Noisy Planet recommends that you wear hearing protectors any time sound levels reach at least 85 A-weighted decibels. (Learn about the decibel levels of common sounds and download a smartphone app to measure noise levels.)
Our new fact sheet, Hearing Protectors for a Noisy Planet, highlights when you should use hearing protectors, how to choose the best hearing protector for your use (or your child’s use), and instructions for using hearing protectors the right way. Noisy Planet also offers shareable GIFs and videos on hearing protectors.
This publication and many others are available to read, download, print, or order from our website.
