It can be prevented!

Recently, there has been an increasing concern for hearing loss: especially within the military for our veterans. The Hearing Health Foundation Veteran Statistics show that hearing loss is one of the two leading health conditions among military veterans at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers.

In 2016, there were 1.1 million compensation receipts for a hearing loss disability. With proper fitting and consistency in wearing the hearing protective devices, hearing loss is very preventable. Military soldiers typically experience hearing loss after exposure to loud noises, such as working in an airplane hangar or the noise of an explosion.

With today’s increasingly advanced technology, soldiers and workers no longer have to choose between protecting their ears and saving their lives.

In January 2017, 3M introduced a similar hearing protection headset for hunters and shooters that simultaneously measures and cancels out specific gun noises while amplifying voices and phone conversations.

The hearing and safety businesses are part of 3M’s  $5.7 billion spent within the safety and graphics effort, which is the second-largest of the five 3M businesses.
