Consider this September 2016 article in USA Today,
“In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, [hearing loss] is the most common work-related injury with approximately 22 million workers exposed annually to hazardous levels of occupational noise. Workers in the mining sector, followed by those in construction and manufacturing, are most likely to suffer from hearing impairment. An estimated $242 million is spent on worker’s compensation annually for hearing loss disability, according to the Department of Labor.”
Remember, noise-induced hearing loss is preventable if you wear hearing protection.
