Hearing Awareness Week And Noise Levels In A Dental Surgery

Hearing Awareness Week And Noise Levels In A Dental Surgery

It’s Hearing Awareness Week, from Sunday August 25, 2013. On their website, Hearing Awareness Week has provided a noise calculator where you can see the amount of noise produced in various situations around the home and outside. It looks at various styles of music, tools, and places in and out of the home.

We were excited to see that the maximum safe exposure without ear protection in a dental surgery is eight hours: that just about covers our typical work day!

Interestingly, the maximum safe exposure without ear protection to a baby crying is also eight hours!

The noise calculator is a fun tool, and well worth a look.
