Noise induced hearing loss – Audio demonstration by the Health and Safety Executive, UK

Noise induced hearing loss is irreversible damage to the ears caused by exposure to high levels of noise. A recording on HSE site demonstrates how hearing is gradually lost over a working life: «Noise induced hearing loss – Audio demonstration reveals potential effects». You can also 'see' the sort of damage that excessive noise can cause inside your ears; the clip has been reproduced from "The Hearing Video" by the kind permission of WorksafeBC.
