Prevention : Guaranteed.
Acoustic shock is a form of hearing damage caused by exposure to sudden high intensity and high frequency noises transmitted through a phone or headset. Irreversible and unable to be cured, each case is just as dangerous for a business as for its employee.
With call centre employees spending such large amounts of time on their phones and headsets, it is no surprise that cases of acoustic shock are on the rise.
