  • Description:
    "It's not just your parent or your grandparent whose hearing may be slipping. A 25-year-old farmer can have the ears of a 50-year-old and not even know it! Did You Know? 1. Nothing can restore lost hearing. Once it's gone, it's gone! 2. Hearing loss caused by noise is preventable - and you can choose to prevent it. 3. Noise-induced hearing loss can result from working around farm noise - even hand drills - without hearing protection. 4. If you're exposed to loud noise on the farm you may already be losing your hearing. 5. Hearing protection can increase your ability to hear your equipment or others' voices because it cuts down on the background noise. Some earmuffs have amplification circuits that may help even hearing impaired workers communicate better in noisy backgrounds. 6. You can buy protective earmuffs with built-in radios that allow you to listen safely to your favorite sports or music while working. They make nice gifts. 7. People have found that protecting themselves from noise reduces their stress, anxiety and fatigue at the end of the day. 8. The best way to avoid hearing loss is to reduce your exposure by using quieter equipment or staying away from noise." --NIOSHTIC-2
