Protect your hearing


What causes hearing loss?

Machinery, loud music, airplane engines, motors and other environmental factors could cause hearing loss.

Did you know that anything over 85 decibels (dB) can result in hearing loss? Gunshots, for example, are nearly double that. A gunshot can rate around 140 dB, which means that it’s loud enough to require hearing protection. Anything over 85 dB can result in hearing loss, and a gunshot can easily be close to double that figure. A gunshot can even cause instant damage.

Hearing damage can also result from a prolonged exposure, which means that if you fire weapons , listen to loud music, work in a factory or operate machinery on a consistent basis you are at a much greater risk for having hearing problems.  

​For more information about what causes hearing loss go to CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health’s hearing loss articles.
