WE Solicitors have successfully represented Mr C against his former employers who exposed him to excessive noise throughout his employment with them between 1985 and 1999. The company was involved in the mining industry in Hucknall, Nottingham and made mining equipment including hydraulic roof supports.
WE Solicitors have successfully represented a number of clients recently who worked in the oil and gas industry. The clients contacted us as they were suffering with what they described as poor hearing and whistling or buzzing in the ears which would come and go (this is known as tinnitus). For some time they had believed their symptoms were due to normal wear and tear and their age. However having attended their GP’s and often being referred to the local hospital they were diagnosed with noise induced hearing loss.
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.
