Ear protection equipment is very important in many work environments. Ear muffs are one of the choices when it comes to protecting a workers ear. In some loud environments, an earplug may not be sufficient protection for the ears. Also some workers may be uncomfortable wearing earplugs. Enter Ear Muffs.
Ear Muffs are a device with a foam covered ear cup attached to each end of a head band. Ear Muffs are worn in work environments where a worker is exposed to consistent loud noise and protection is needed to block these sounds. With ear muffs, normal conversation may or may not be able to be heard, so be sure that the workplace has some sort of warning alarm system in case of an emergency. Ear muffs look much like headphones and cover the ears completely. Some workers may find ear muffs much more comfortable than earplugs. Ear muffs must fit properly to provide adequate protection, so be sure nothing comes in between the ear and the ear muff. Ear muffs also protect the ears in cold weather. Ear muffs can be used in a number of industrial or recreational applications like construction, printing press operators, woodworking, machinery, equipment operators, automotive industry, airline industry or shooting.
