Sunday was World Hearing Day, meant to raise awareness about preventing hearing loss and promoting hearing care worldwide. If you’re looking for protective equipment from Grainger, or hearing aids from Great Hearing Benefits, flex your Farm Bureau membership for excellent savings.

World Hearing Day 2024 may be over, but it's never a bad time to share this information with friends or family, especially in our industry.

Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is a serious condition that can cause permanent damage to your hearing. Loud noises can damage to the tiny hair cells in your inner ear. NIHL is preventable but can’t be reversed once it occurs. People in the agriculture, mining, construction, military, carpentry and oil or gas extraction industries are particularly vulnerable.

What can be done? Identify and prevent NIHL before your hearing is damaged. Some tips:

  1. Protect your ears from loud noises with earplugs, earmuffs or other hearing protection when exposed to loud noise. (Save some money and get these through Grainger; visit the Grainger member savings page.)
  2. Control volume levels by keeping your TV, radio and other devices at a safe volume. Avoid high volumes when using headphones or earbuds.
  3. Avoid exposure to loud environments like concerts and construction sites. Use hearing protection.
  4. Get regular hearing check-ups with your doctor or hearing professional to identify and treat hearing loss early.

If it’s time for hearing aids, visit the Great Hearing Benefits savings page for information on how to schedule an appointment with their specialists and save up to 50%.
