Hearing Loss Workplace Assessment Details

In the UK 1 in 6 of the UK adult population is affected by hearing loss and around 900,000 people are severely or profoundly deaf. Many people with hearing loss also have tinnitus, affecting 1 in 10 adults. These statistics are quite staggering and catering to the requirements of any staff members with additional needs due to hearing difficulties is essential. An inclusive workplace shows an employer to be responsible and looking out for the best needs of their staff.
