Noise induced hearing loss has always been associated with people who have worked in heavy industry such as shipbuilding, the metal and steel industry and manufacturing. Over the last 10 years there has been a resurgence in the number of claims against employers for exposing their employees or former employees to harmful levels of noise whilst at work. It is widely accepted that after 1961, in most industries, employers should have taken steps to protect their workforce from exposure to noise by providing hearing protection.
