There are a number of things that may come to mind when you think about the factors that contribute to a workplace injury in Denver County. In many cases, people picture construction sites, heavy equipment or toxic chemicals as the threats that can lead to on-the-job injury cases. As one recent study points out, noise may also play an important role.
A Canadian study estimates that as many as 30 million workers in the United States are exposed to circumstances that may lead to noise-induced hearing loss. According to one researcher, someone who encounters loud noise levels could experience fatigue and have a lowered ability to concentrate, and loud sounds can also affect workers’ communication. All of these consequences could lead to reduced safety in the work environment.
