Detectable hearing protection for comfort and safety

With loud machinery running 24/7, wearing hearing protection when working in the food industry is paramount to safeguarding your hearing. uvex have a range of detectable hearing protection that is not only visually striking to stand out amongst products, but also feature integrated metal parts to allow the earplugs to show up in X-ray scans.

Unintentionally harming a consumer or having the consumer find a foreign object in the product is the last thing any food processor wants. If a stray earplug finds its way into food produced at a facility, the company’s reputation could also be damaged. That’s why metal detectable earplugs are the ideal method of hearing protection in food processing facilities. Most food processing facilities use metal detection machines that test the outgoing product for metal. The machines are sensitive enough to detect a metal detectable earplug that has accidentally made its way into the food stream. Metal detectable earplugs are one of the easiest ways to help ensure that this type of non-food ingredient never makes its way into a food source.
