Hearing Conservation (Construction)
There is an estimated 33 million people in the U.S. with hearing loss enough to affect their daily activities. Occupational-related noise exposure accounts for 11 million cases of hearing loss. Another 36 to 37 million people suffer from tinnitus, which is a chronic ringing in the ears. Hearing problems can make you feel embarrassed, upset and lonely.
