Addressing Hearing Loss Proves Win-Win for Both Employer and Employee, BHI Advises During National Employee Wellness Month
Date:5/13/2013

WASHINGTON, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Addressing hearing loss in the workplace is a smart business strategy that benefits both employer and employee, the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is advising during the 5th Annual National Employee Wellness Month, which takes place in June. BHI is urging employers to include hearing health as part of their workplace wellness programs. To help facilitate timely hearing self-screenings for all American workers, BHI is offering an online hearing check at www.hearingcheck.org, where anyone can quickly assess if they need a more comprehensive hearing test by a hearing healthcare professional. 

As the median age of the American worker goes up, it becomes increasingly important that hearing health become a workplace wellness priority. Not only can unaddressed hearing loss affect quality of life, but it can unnecessarily affect job performance and earnings by limiting one's ability to communicate effectively; restricting interpersonal interactions; making it difficult to receive and interpret auditory information from computers, machines, and individuals; and posing a risk to one's ability to hear sounds that signal hazards in the work environment. Fortunately, hearing aids—as well as other appropriate treatments and workplace accommodations—can help significantly.

Already, nearly 40 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. The majority of them are in the workforce. Certainly, as workers continue to age, these numbers will go up. What's more, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects the number of older workers in the civilian labor force to increase—by as much as 11,397,000 in the ten-year period from 2010 to 2020 for workers who are 55 and older. Yet the anticipated increase for workers aged 25
