Demand for Active Protection from the Oil, Gas, and Mining Industries Will Drive Market Revenue
This market insight looks at the key emerging industry and technology trends for hearing conservation and protection across the globe in select end-user industries. A statistical analysis of occupational noise-induced hearing loss across select industries is provided along with an assessment of the global regulatory environment regarding hearing conservation. The study includes a detailed explanation on the key elements of a hearing conservation program as well as the various hearing protection devices used across industries. It concludes by focusing on the growth opportunities for hearing conservation and protection through an analysis of the current and future scenarios for this market. The base year for this study is 2013.
-This market insight looks at the key emerging industry and technology trends for hearing conservation and protection across the globe in select end-user industries. The objective is to assess the current and future scenario for hearing conservation and protection, and provide strategic input.
-Although the use of hearing protection has gradually increased across industries, statistics by the World Health Organization (WHO) indicate a steady rise in occupational noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). A major reason for this is lack of knowledge and ineffective implementation of best practices required for hearing conservation.
-End-user awareness regarding noise hazards plays a key role in selection and implementation of an effective hearing conservation program (HCP). This comprehensive program involves noise monitoring, selection of appropriate engineering and administrative controls, training and education programs for employees, regular audiometric testing, and provision of Hearing Protection Devices (HPDs) to the end users.
-Major health and safety regulatory bodies across the world have specified criteria regarding implementation of an effective HCP. High financial costs due to litigation suits involving occupational NIHL have resulted in increased adoption of hearing conservation in select end user industries, especially in the oil and gas and mining industries.
-HPDs are used as a last resort if all other methods fail to eliminate noise hazards. Selection criteria is determined by the nature of the noise hazard, the HPD’s noise reduction rating (NRR), degree of comfort provided to the end user, and price.
