Hearing Protection

Ear protection is crucial when working in a loud workplace. 174 PPE provide a range of high quality ear defenders to protect you from sound damage. We offer brands such as Portwest.  Our hearing protection equipment ranges from industrial use to the more specialised high noise protection. Whatever your work environment, you will find the right equipment to provide the protection you need. We offer outer and inner ear versions and all are decibel rated to ensure the right product and protection for the appropriate noise level.  

Ear protection helps to protect a user’s hearing from damage caused by loud or noisy environments. In the workplace when exposed to noise over a certain level it is a legal requirement to be provided with and wear hearing protection. The Control of Noise at Work Regulations in 2006 regulations ensure hearing protection must be available for workplaces with persistent noise at 80 decibels (dB), and compulsory at 85 dB or higher to prevent hearing loss and/or permanent ringing or buzzing in the ears (tinnitus).  

Outside of the workplace safeguarding long term hearing health and preventing hearing loss after being exposed to loud noises can be achieved by wearing the correct protection.
