 In Work Related Illness

Acoustic trauma or acoustic shock syndrome is a relatively new type of industrial disease most often associated with call centre workers who use poor quality audio equipment. It occurs when a person is subjected to an extremely loud noise or series of noises at close proximity to the ear such as a person shouting or gunshots. With no protection to the ears acoustic shock can cause irreparable damage.

There has been a huge increase in recent years in the number of cases of acoustic shock from call centre workers as more people are taking to this kind of employment. However even though headsets have been available from major manufacturers since the 1990’s that included noise limiters to protect the ears of the user if sound hits 118 dB or greater many cheaper models and internet phone headsets still lack these noise limiting features and the wearer is at risk if the person on the other end of the line shouts or if the headset causes sharp or unexpected noise.

If you have experienced noise-induced hearing loss or industrial deafness after prolonged exposure to high levels of noise in your working environment then you should speak with the experts at Oakwood Solicitors about making a compensation claim against your employer in London or elsewhere in the UK.
