The research shows that any sound at or above 85dB may damage our hearing, long-term exposure to loud noise can produce a partial or complete loss of hearing, and this exposure limit is also recommended by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). It is known that the construction site is a typical workplace with intensive hazardous noise, but most of the construction workers didn't pay much attention to this high risk, and few wearing hearing protection headsets, it is urgent to draw attention to the importance of hearing protection headsets on construction sites!

Noise sources on construction sites

At the construction site, different construction machinery and construction methods are used along with the progress of the project and the replacement of the construction process. For example, in foundation engineering, there are earth blasting, trench excavation, leveling and cleaning of the site, ramming, piling, etc. In the main project, there are vertical steel skeletons or reinforced concrete skeletons, hoisting components, mixing and pouring concrete, etc. There are frequent transportation activities of materials and components from beginning to end, in addition, there are various beats, impact, the collapse of old buildings, shouts of people, etc.
