Protection against hearing damage is essential if you're exposed to loud sounds as a result of occupational or recreational activity. 

How loud is too loud?

Any sound that is loud enough and lasts long enough can damage hearing and lead to hearing loss. A sound's loudness is measured in decibels (dB). Normal conversation is about 60 dB, a lawn mower is about 90 dB, and a loud rock concert is about 120 dB - with some concerts recording levels of almost 140 dB.

Long or repeated exposure to sounds at or above 85 decibels can cause hearing loss. This is the level at which employers must provide hearing protection.

Around the world 30-50 million people are exposed to dangerous noise levels every day. But the effects of noise are often underestimated because the damage can take place gradually over time.
