Hearing loss is permanent. It cannot be reversed. Hearing loss may result in an impairment and/or a disability.
Hearing loss due to noise is preventable. It is the responsibility of all employers to provide hearing protection to workers who are exposed to excessive noise levels in the workplace. It is the obligation of all workers to wear the hearing protection provided.
All claims decisions are appealable to the Workers' Compensation Health and Safety Board.
