NIOSH Offers New Guidance to Help Musicians Protect their Hearing

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health published new guidance to help musicians and those who work in the music industry protect their hearing.
Professional musicians such as orchestra, band members, music teachers, as well as others in the music industry such as disc jockeys, audio engineers, and crew members are all at risk for developing permanent hearing loss, ringing in the ears, and other hearing disorders from prolonged exposure to loud music. Exposures to noise exceeding 85 decibels over 8 hours (dBA) are considered hazardous, and if the noise reaches 100 dBA, it could take only 15 minutes to cause permanent damage if exposed for a prolonged period of time.
