According to the World Health Organization, approximately 466 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss. Projections show that number growing to 900 million by 2050. Undiagnosed and untreated hearing loss can have significant effects on someone’s quality of life. Because hearing loss is not visible, people with hearing loss tend to ignore their difficulties, or may not recognize the early stages of hearing loss.
In the event that an employee suffers a work-related illness or injury, the employer is required to complete a form known as the OSHA 300 Log. This Log is used to categorize and track the severity of the illness or injury.
