Boating, jet skiing, motorcycling, hunting and golfing can cause hearing loss.
The summer has arrived and that means that it’s time for many fun and exciting outdoor activities. But many of these activities can be noisy. This can damage your hearing and may result in a hearing loss.
Some of the summer activities that can damage your ears are:
Use hearing protection. The human ear can tolerate noise levels of up to 85 dB over a longer period.
The noise levels in the above-mentioned summer activities range from 80 dB to 140 dB and after prolonged exposure, noise at these levels can damage your hearing. The higher the noise level, the shorter the length of time the human ear can tolerate such a strain. As a recommendation, hearing protection should therefore be used in all activities with noise levels that exceed 85 dB.
