However, this damage is avoidable if the correct steps are taken to prevent this as once your hearing is gone you cannot get it back. A loss of hearing can also interfere with communications by stopping people from being able to understand or follow conversations and therefore, can make verbal warnings or alarms harder to hear. These issues can further lead to safety risks that put people at risk of injury or even death.
