It is not a very good idea to expose yourself to too much loud noise. Your ears are sensitive and powerful tools that should last you a lifetime. However if you are exposed to loud noises on a constant basis the chances of tinnitus or deafness increase. Hearing is a primal skill that we humans have that alert us to danger. For example if you start hearing weird noises coming from your boiler you’ll wish that you’d had it installed properly by a Boiler Installation Gloucester based company to help keep the annoying noises at bay.
We now have legislation that limits in the workplace the loudness of sounds that we are exposed to. A visit to the National Trust site of Quarry Bank Mill can ably demonstrate the noise that workers had to endure. On one level all of the machines are left running and the noise is incessant. Workers had to wodge pieces of unused cloth in their ears to protect themselves. You are only allowed to spend ten minutes on this level but the workers did not have this luxury.
This was also true in the mining industry. The introduction of drill hammers was seen as major advancement in time and safety for the workers. However the deafening roar of the hammers, plus the fact the sound was magnified underground, led to hearing problems for many in later life. Ear defenders and protective clothing have become enshrined in law to protect workers from such unscrupulous practices.
