Figures reported by Hearing Awareness Week reveal one in six Australians is deaf, hearing impaired or has an ear disorder, with the most common causes of hearing loss being due to age or loud noises.
Noise-induced hearing loss is of major concern, as it is one of the most common and preventable occupational injuries. According to Safe Work Australia there were approximately 16,500 successful workers’ compensation claims for industrial deafness involving permanent impairment due to noise from July 2002 – June 2007.
Damage to hearing can occur from exposure to extremely loud noise over a short period of time or prolonged exposure to moderate noise levels. Hearing loss occurs gradually with loss being irreversible, so it’s important to be aware of the risks and limit exposure to excessive noise wherever possible.
Hearing Awareness Week is from Sunday 23 – Saturday 29 August and aims to raise awareness of just how precious and fragile hearing is and what we can do to protect ourselves from noise injuries.

An estimated 32 million people in the U.S. are hearing impaired. Put another way, one out of every ten of us has hearing loss that affect our ability to enjoy films, lectures and other public presentations or decipher public announcements at places such as airports and sports stadiums.
Hearing aids improve a person’s ability to hear in quiet locations, but they can’r filter out background loss and reverberation in public places. The more the wearer increases the volume of the hearing aid, the higher the level of background noise. An announcement on a public address system is often incomprehensible.
Increasingly, a hearing loop is being embraced as the solution to the problem. Arkansas Loops is excited about “looping” Arkansas!

Keep church members involved:
According to the Better Hearing Institute almost one out of every 11 persons has hearing loss. By offering barrier free hearing access, churches will help their auditorially challenged members once again join in the worship experience and prevent some from giving up on attending because they can not hear well enough.
