laws and regulations

Hearing damage has a very significant impact. That is why the European Union took the decision to include it in the main category of risks related to working conditions. After all, hearing damage is permanent. Once contracted, the symptoms of hearing damage are experienced for life.

It is safe to work in an environment with noises up to 80 decibels. That is roughly comparable to a hoover or city traffic.

When the sounds come above these 80 decibels, it quickly becomes risky. Every 3 decibels above 80 decibels doubles the impact on human hearing. For this reason, people may only work for up to four hours a day in an environment with noise levels of 83 decibels.

Is the noise 103 decibels or higher (103 decibels is roughly equivalent to the sound of a grinder or leaf blower)? Then hearing within 5 minutes be damaged.

Hearing protection in the workplace is therefore necessary. But from which values is hearing protection mandatory? We provide an overview:

  • In working conditions with sounds above 80 decibels, workers have right to hearing protection.
  • From 85 decibels hearing protection mandatory.
  • Zones with sounds above 85 decibels should be clearly identified as such marked to be.
  • Noise above 87 decibels? Then there must be measures be taken to reduce decibels.
  • Employees are entitled to information and hearing tests.

The best custom-made earplugs we find our otoplastics. These are high-quality hearing protectors, completely tailored to the end user's ear canals. Because we are confident about our products, we give standard two-year fit guarantee. Do the otoplastics leak sound within two years? Then the end-user is entitled to replacement.

More than 20 years of experience

We base our conviction for the quality of our custom-made earplugs on our experience and expertise. We have over 20 years of experience and more than 80,000(!) ears protected.

Our seven consultants know the tricks of the trade and always know how to come to the best advice for the end-user's situation. We use various tests, in which we measure the ambient and peak noise, among other things. Using the results, we put together the otoplasty unique to your end-user situation.

Manufacturing process of custom-made earplugs

After we carry out the tests and fit the otoplastics, we take the results to our own laboratory. Here we have in-house production of the otoplastics. This way, we can guarantee the best custom-made earplugs.

Of course, we ensure personal delivery. This is because we find it important to check upon delivery that the final product does not actually leak any sound. This is how we prevent false safety. We offer free annual leak tests.


Besides producing the earplugs, we also do various handouts on prevention as an additional service. Namely; toolbox, e-paper and an information poster.

The toolbox is an on-site presentation by one of our consultants. In an interactive way, employees are involved in the importance of hearing protection for themselves and the organisation. In the e-paper we go through all facets of hearing damage and hearing protection. The information poster is intended for the workplace, to draw employees' daily attention to the importance of using hearing protection.
