Causes Of Hearing And Vision Loss
Hearing loss in the workplace can happen in an instant as the result of an explosion, or as a side effect of a head injury suffered in a work accident. Hearing damage or deafness can also develop over time, the result of long-term exposure to the high-decibel sounds of jackhammers, heavy equipment and even loud music. Victims may suffer total hearing loss or suffer from hearing issues such as tinnitus.
Vision loss may be the result of an on-the-job accident such as an explosion. It may also be the result of getting chemicals or particles in the eye. Blindness could be a symptom of a more extensive brain injury. Long-term exposure to welding equipment, smoke or fumes may also cause vision loss to develop over time.
