If you work all day in noise levels 85 decibels (dB) or higher, you’re going to experience hearing loss.

How loud is 85 decibels?

Whisper – 20 dB
Normal conversation – 60 dB
Heavy traffic – 80 dB
Lawn mower – 95 dB
Fire truck siren – 120 dB
Rock concert – 140 dB
Jet plane taking off – 160 dB

To protect your hearing, wear earplugs or special ear muffs when-ever possible—especially in the workplace. Try to find time and space for some “peace and quiet.”

Unfortunately, hearing loss is cumulative.
