Hearing Injury Can Happen Without Warning.
Most hearing loss happens slowly over time. You may not even notice it as it's happening. That's why it's important to have your ears checked annually.
Injury often start off as muffled hearing, ringing or buzzing sounds after a performance or rehearsal. In most cases, the symptoms are temporary. You shrug it off. But over time, the effects become more pronounced and longer lasting. Without warning, they can become permanent.
OSHA isn’t stepping onto your stage. We don’t want anyone to regulate music. We just want you to be protected.
