Protecting your ears from loud noises can help to reduce the risk of suffering with conditions such as tinnitus and loss of hearing. Below are a few simple rules to follow to help protect your hearing:
- Don’t listen to your music too loud, especially if you are using headphones as this can damage your ears. Research suggests that most young people have their music too loud; this can cause permanent damage to the ears as it contributes to hearing loss.
- Wear protective ear guards if you work around loud machinery or in noisy environments; examples of these careers include working outside at airports or on the roads.
