Evaluate the Noise Level
The best and quickest way to determine whether you need molded ear plugs is recognizing that you have to raise your voice to speak with someone who is an only a few feet away. Additionally, if you are experiencing ringing or diminished hearing in your ears for hours after work, you may be in need of hearing protection. These are indicators that the noise level is at 85 decibels are higher, which can cause permanent damage.
Using Molded Ear Plugs Properly
In order to get the protection you need, it is critical that the right ear plugs are used and that molded ear plugs are formed to create a seal. You can also evaluate whether you need a headband to better affix the earplugs.
Another consideration is adding earmuffs in addition to the molded ear plugs. This is strongly recommended for those that work within noise levels that exceed 105 decibels. This may include those that work with drills, chainsaws, and other loud machinery.
