International Ear Care Day – March 3, 2015
The World Health Organization (WHO) are launching a ‘Make Listening Safe’ initiative to mark International Ear Care Day and draw attention to the dangers of unsafe listening and to promote safer listening.
The WHO will alert young people and their families about the risks of noise-induced hearing loss. Worldwide, 360 million people today have moderate to profound hearing loss due to various causes, such as noise, genetic conditions, complications at birth, certain infectious diseases, chronic ear infections, the use of particular drugs, and ageing. It is estimated that half of all cases of hearing loss are avoidable.
Melbourne Audiology Centre specialises in hearing protection and in particular custom made ear plugs. We offer a variety of ear plugs for different situations, so that the wearer can protect their hearing whilst listening to the sounds they love. Read more.
