Hearing Issues for Musicians – presented by Musicians Hearing Services Clinical Director, Paul Checkley

Exposure to loud noise can cause irreversible damage to your hearing. In fact, according to the World Health Organisation, noise induced hearing loss is the most common work-based injury. Despite this hearing protection is still not always considered in the music and entertainment industry even though many musicians are exposed to damaging levels of noise on a daily basis. This session focuses on the physiology of hearing and hearing loss and discusses the needs of musicians in hearing conservation. Provision of custom made musicians hearing protection is available on the day.
