Hearing Protection is just too easily overlooked in small shops.
On large sites everyone wears them because of Health and Safety rules but at home, they mostly just get left on the shelf.
And the long term effects can be anything from annoying to catastrophic later in life.
The smallest and cheapest type of hearing protection is ear plugs.
Easily kept in a pocket and small enough to keep lots of them around the shop.
Hearing protection cups, like stereo headphones offer the best protection and with padding against the side of the head, won’t annoy or become irritating.
But with this type of hearing protection you know you’re safe and hearing loss won’t become a problem later.
Protectors come in all varieties of cost and performance.
