Risk of hearing loss warning

WHO make listening safe

Some 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults worldwide are at risk of hearing loss due to the unsafe use of personal audio devices, including smartphones, and exposure to damaging levels of sound at noisy entertainment venues such as nightclubs, bars and sporting events, according to the World Health Organisation.

Hearing loss has potentially devastating consequences for physical and mental health, education and employment.

To mark International Ear Care Day, March 3rd, WHO is launching the “Make Listening Safe” initiative to draw attention to the dangers of unsafe listening and promote safer practices.  For more details read WHO make listening safe
