HEARING AID REPAIRS
Hearing aids have become a necessity for many people. They help to amplify sound, which can be difficult if one has hearing loss due to old age or disease. For those who need it the most, these devices are an important tool in helping them get back their independence and live life just like everyone else! If you find that your hearing aid is not working after routine use then there might be something wrong with its internal parts such as the speaker membrane; this could cause distortion of volume levels from different frequencies so we recommend bringing them into our office where they will receive professional care by experienced technicians!
INDUSTRIAL HEARING SCREENINGS
As a result of occupational noise exposure, many workers suffer from hearing loss and tinnitus. A study published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine found that 55% of heavy machinery operators have a moderate to severe hearing impairment with average shift length between 10-12 hours per day. However, industrial OSHA regulations mandate annual screening for all employees regardless if they are exposed at work or not because it is impossible to predict who will be impacted by this condition over time which means more than just those on your construction team should get screened periodically!
