How Loud Is Too Loud?
Industrial workplace noises, loud music, and other common, everyday sounds that are louder than 85 decibels can cause permanent hearing loss. A worker can experience hearing loss as a result of exposure to things like a loud blast, power mower, bulldozer, gunshot, and even an ambulance siren.
According to the United States Department of Labor, 22 million people are exposed to harmful noise levels at their workplaces every year with noise exposure being one of the most common occupational hazards in the United States. Some of the occupations with the highest risk of noise exposure are agriculture, construction work, assembly line work, and any job involving loud machinery or music.
