Hearing protection for persons with hearing loss will be adapted to the individual hearing capacity. Using hearing protectors with sufficient sound attenuation in real-world use, good signal audibility and speech perception will enable persons with hearing loss to keep their job.
Fitting checks for custom moulded hearing protectors and determination of the individual sound attenuation of earplugs have the target to preserve the hearing ability. The use of hearing aids while working in noise areas (hearing protection zones) shall be established on a broad basis of approved devices.
