Responsible employers recognise the importance caring for their employees' hearing health - particularly limiting noise exposure - as a part of Western Australia's standard occupational health and safety regulations.
Whether working in an industrial field, in hospitality, in a public service office, or in a corporate workplace, both employers and their employees have a vested interest in ensuring a workplace provides a safe working environment, every day. Education on healthy lifestyle choices as well as the use of industry-standard occupational health and safety practices are of integral importance to maximise employee morale, workplace productivity and lasting employee health.
Your employees may not realise the importance of caring for their hearing before its too late. This is where you need to take action: prevention is better than cure, and sometimes the smallest lifestyle or workplace changes can make a big difference!
