Hearing loss is unfortunately one of those things that affects many seniors in Australia. Often it is something that happens naturally, other times it might be because of exposure to loud noise. Whatever the cause, unfortunately it is irreversible.
The Worker Compensation scheme in most States in Australia including New South Wales, now allow workers who are suffering from hearing loss caused by exposure to loud noise at work, to claim compensation and hearing aids.
Industrial Deafness Claims
Occupational hearing loss, or industrial deafness, is a condition which affects many workers without their knowledge. Commonly, it is family or friends who first notice hearing loss. If your family or friends are complaining that you listen to the television too loud, or you are having to ask them to repeat themselves regularly, or you cannot hear people talk when there is background noise, it is often a sign that you might have hearing loss and it is recommended you have your hearing tested.
