    Earplugs rely on adequately fitting in the ear canal. Sometimes, it is not guaranteed that they will fit. They tend to have a problem when it comes to fitting. However, workers and anyone who uses earplugs should be trained to fit them properly to overcome these challenges.

     

    1. Infections

    If you have an ear infection, it is impossible to use earplugs. Because they are uncomfortable and might touch the infection or wound, bringing more pain.

    1. Share earplugs

    Sharing earplugs is not recommended. Unlike earmuffs that cover the ear on the outside, earplugs are fitted in the ear.

     

    Will Earplugs Prevent Hearing Loss?

    Yes, earplugs will prevent hearing loss. They are worn to protect your hearing when working in noisy conditions. When your ears are exhibited to too much noise, you risk experiencing hearing damage. When the noise damages your nerve ending in the inner ear, your hearing can not be fixed.

    Earplugs will block out the noise, protecting your ears.
