In the new year, we remain committed to hearing protection in noise-affected work environments. Although the Occupational Health and Safety Act remains stable and introduces few changes before 2024, there is more emphasis on the implementation and reimbursement of otoplastics.
The standards for noise levels requiring protection remain the same: at 80 dB(A), protection must be offered, and at 85 dB(A), wearing it is mandatory. These rules are clearly outlined on the Occupational Health and Safety Portal, where you can read more about the specific obligations. What is changing is a greater emphasis on awareness and compliance. The goal is to ensure that every employee not only has access to hearing protection, but also understands why wearing it is critical.

Employer reimbursement for otoplastics remains a given, but in 2024 we encourage a personalized approach. We put more emphasis on customization and comfort to increase acceptance and use of otoplastics.
Although hearing damage is persistently a present occupational disease, prevention remains the most effective strategy. And with custom-made otoplastics that fit perfectly, it becomes easier to choose a safe and healthy work environment.
These specially designed hearing protectors play an important role in the daily protection of workers from noise pollution. Even in 2024, it is clear that choosing otoplastics is not only a smart, but also an essential step for the health of every worker.
We are committed to making the process of fitting and ordering otoplastics as easy as possible. Whether you choose our on-site service or prefer a personal visit to a Hans Anders store, we make sure you get the support you need to ensure hearing health within your team.
