How Loud is Too Loud?

Dangerous Decibels is a two-day workshop run by international hearing experts from New Zealand, the US and Malaysia.

Thanks to a grant from Lotterywest, Ear Science hosted experts at our clinical headquarters in Subiaco for a workshop with a group of local teachers, audiologists and community leaders.

Attendees learnt to present a fun and award-winning 50-minute interactive hearing education class for school classrooms, workplaces and more.

The class uses sound meters, hearing protection, tuning forks and other scientific tools to facilitate students’ exploration of sound, how it travels and how they can protect their hearing.

After completing the course, attendees became Dangerous Decibels certified instructors, capable of delivering the interactive class for their own classrooms and communities.
