Risk of Hearing Loss in Teachers

Monday, October 8, 2018 1:33:07 PM Asia/Calcutta

With loud bells ringing, children shouting and screaming, announcements over loudspeakers or microphones, slamming of doors or lockers - you are exposed to such high decibels of sounds all the time. In other words you are at a very high risk of acquiring occupational noise induced hearing loss (NIHL)! According to a study, classrooms were recorded to be having noise levels of about 87 dB - exposing to which increases the risks of hearing impairment. But sadly, teachers and educators often overlook this problem and hence, refuse opting for a hearing loss treatment.

Hearing loss in teachers occurs at a very young age than other occupational noise induced hearing loss. The continuous exposure to screams from hallways, sports rooms, canteens or lunchrooms, musical instruments from music rooms, etc. - all contribute to hearing loss. Hearing loss in teachers and lecturers often make them unable to concentrate during lectures. This results in a reduction of productivity at teaching or lecturing. Certain hearing loss treatment methods like hearing aids might be effective in managing this problem.

Although teachers are more prone to hearing loss at primary or even secondary schools, yet at higher education institutions, lecturers and professors have to be attentive and be able to listen and understand properly all the time - in order to keep up with the classroom activities.

According to a research study done by the Danish Centre of Educational Environment, teachers who are younger than 40 years report a much higher rate (near about 26%) of hearing problems than that of other professionals (which is about 17%). Other studies have proved that teachers are much at higher risks of having hearing loss due to their exposure to unsafe volumes of sounds - such as at choir or music rooms and gymnasiums (as high as 90 dB). Music teachers and coaches or trainers of various games and sports are especially vulnerable to such high sound levels - thus leading to their early hearing loss problems - and compelling them to seek some hearing loss treatment at an early age!

A common problem among teachers due to their overexposure to risky sound levels is tinnitus - or ringing in the ears. This can cause difficulties in concentrating on the classroom activities and even understanding what the children are saying. Thus teachers and lecturers find themselves often telling others to repeat what they have said! As a result, they might feel stressed faster due to their being attentive and trying to listen all the time. This often makes teachers being misunderstood and often ignored!

It would therefore, be a big mistake on your part to leave your hearing problems untreated, as the problems would go adverse and would bring in more medical complications - such as Dementia associated with forgetfulness, anxiety, depression and the like, as well as social and communication barriers like social isolation, speech difficulties, difficulty in understanding what others are trying to convey, and the like.

Consult a certified Audiologist today at your nearest hearing loss treatment clinic and resume your class activities which you have been missing all these time!
