Hearing Protection: A Priority for Lyreco Intersafe UK & Ireland

At Lyreco Intersafe UK & Ireland, we understand that hearing is a precious sense that plays a fundamental role in communication and safety in the workplace. Protecting this vital sense is not just a regulatory requirement but a commitment to the well-being of our workforce. Recent studies, including the Labour Force Survey, indicate that approximately 11,000 cases of occupational hearing issues were reported from 2019 to 2022, highlighting the critical need for effective hearing protection strategies.

Personal Hearing Protection Solutions

We offer a range of personal hearing protection equipment, including earmuffs and earplugs, tailored to various workplace environments. Our earmuffs come in different styles such as headband, neckbands, and those that can be attached to safety helmets or face protection. Ensuring proper fit and compliance, our products meet rigorous testing and certification standards, such as the harmonised European Standard and UK Designated Standard EN 352-3.

Importance of Proper Fit Testing

To ensure maximum protection, it is crucial that hearing protectors are correctly fitted. Lyreco Intersafe provides advanced fit-testing systems that assess the level of noise attenuation achieved by each wearer, offering a Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR). This process helps in identifying whether the hearing protector fits well and is providing the intended level of noise reduction, crucial for safeguarding employees’ hearing.

Certification and Compliance

We emphasize the importance of using certified and tested combinations of personal protective equipment. Each earmuff and helmet combination is tested and approved according to EN 352-3 to ensure they provide effective noise reduction and fit seamlessly together without compromising safety.

Our Commitment

Lyreco Intersafe is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of hearing protection in the workplace. We collaborate closely with manufacturers to ensure that our products are tested and certified, providing our clients with the assurance that they are purchasing not only a product but a promise of safety and quality.

Remember, just covering your ears is not enough; ensuring you are protected with the right equipment, properly tested and fitted, is essential. At Lyreco Intersafe, we are committed to helping you “Listen Today, Hear Tomorrow,” ensuring that our protective solutions lead to safer work environments across the UK and Ireland.
