Exposure to noise is the second most common cause of hearing loss after aging. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 40 million U.S. adults aged 20-69 have noise-induced hearing loss.

But noise-induced hearing loss is number one in a different category. According to the CDC, it is the most common work-related injury in the U.S.

Interestingly, it’s not workers in high-noise environments who suffer the most. Instead, it’s those who work in moderate noise levels. Why? Because workers in loud environments are more likely to wear hearing protection.
