When working in an environment where loud or repetitive noises are prevalent, hearing protection is an essential part of PPE to ensure employees do not damage their hearing. These earmuff style ear defenders reduce and deflect loud noises by cupping and protecting the ears. Each ear defender has an SNR (Single Number Rating) to ensure it can be used at the appropriate noise levels to ensure it works effectively in reducing the risk of hearing damage. Ear defenders or ear protection as part of PPE workwear is generally used by the following industries:

• Construction
• Factory production
• Maintenance engineers
• Extreme industrial noise
• Aircraft
• Quarrying
• Paper mills
• Heavy engineering

Standards and Certifications:

• AS/NZS 1270 (SLC (80) 28dB - Class 5)
• EN 352-1 (SNR 28dB)
• ANSI S3.19 (22dB)

Do ear defenders block out sound?

Ear defenders reduce the amount of sound coming through from loud or repetitive noises that could potentially damage an individual’s hearing or cause hearing loss. They do not completely block out noise, however, when selecting the correct ear defender, it can reduce the risk of damage to hearing.

When should ear defenders be worn?

Generally, ear defenders should be worn when working with loud or repetitive noises that measure above 85 decibels over an 8-hour time period. There are, however, parameters that are set by the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) that consider the exposed time period to noises over 85 decibels and when hearing protection is absolutely essential.

What is the best noise reduction rating (NRR)?

The highest NRR rating for ear defenders is 31. Combined with earplugs, this rating can increase to an even higher rating of 36.
