Hearing protection

Workplace noise can be at best a distraction and at worst pose serious health risks for employees. Noise induced hearing loss is still one of the most common occupational hazards of all as it develops painlessly, is progressive and generally goes unnoticed which is why the PPE regulation (EU) 2016/425 includes noise among the irreversible health hazards. Our workplace hearing protection products include innovatively shaped and extremely comfortable disposable ear plugs, with patented x-grip for easy and safe removal and reusable ear plugs conveniently attached to a handy cord, easily cleanable and hygienically stored in individual carrying cases.
