Man using Ear plugs

Ear plugs to support workplace hearing protection. Wear them with or without ear muffs for tailored PPE.

These earplugs, made from durable polyurethane foam, promise both longevity and consistent protection. Their bright colours ensure easy identification, streamlining compliance checks in professional settings.

The combination of soft, slow recovery foam with a smooth texture guarantees superior comfort for extended periods. Designed with a universal tapered shape, they easily adapt to a wide range of ear shapes, ensuring an excellent fit for all users. And, with a noise reduction rating of 36db, they are optimal supplementary PPE in high-noise environments, from bustling factories to loud music festivals.

Unlike bulkier ear defenders, these earplugs remain comfortable even in warm climates, ensuring all-day wearability. The string attachment that connects the two earplugs serves as a convenient feature, preventing loss and facilitating easy removal when necessary.

What Are Soft Ear Plugs Used For?

Man working with ear plugs

Dual-Purpose Protection

Ear plugs serve a dual purpose. Primarily, they protect users from harmful noise levels in the workplace, preventing hearing loss and conditions like tinnitus. They also shield ears from water, dust, foreign objects, and strong winds. Unlike bulkier ear defenders that sit outside the ear, ear plugs are inserted into the ear canal, offering enhanced hearing protection, especially in zones of intense noise.

Their compact nature makes them compatible with other protective equipment, like goggles and helmets. For those in warmer climates, ear plugs are a preferred choice, as they remain comfortable even in heat, unlike ear defenders.

How to Use Soft Ear Plugs

  1. Preparation: Begin by washing and drying your hands thoroughly. Ensure the area around your ear opening is clean and devoid of moisture.
  2. Shaping: Mold the earplug into a rounded shape.
  3. Insertion: Position the earplug over the ear opening and gently press to create an airtight seal, making sure to avoid hair.
  4. Removal: Push slightly forward behind the ear, then gently tug down on the earlobe until the seal releases. Carefully pull the earplug away from the ear opening.

Maintenance & Reusability

To reuse, simply roll and reshape the earplug with clean hands. When the earplug becomes dirty or loses its stickiness, discard it.

Hazards & Cautions

Always utilise the entire earplug. Do not break it into smaller fragments. Using reduced-sized plugs can result in them getting trapped in the ear canal, potentially harming the ear. If fragments of the earplug become lodged inside the ear canal, seek medical attention promptly.

What UK Business Owners Need to Know about Hearing Protection

Ear plugs are part of essential construction site PPE. Find out what else you need to equip your site with for health and safety compliance. In the bustling soundscape of the modern workplace, UK business owners bear a significant responsibility to protect their employees' hearing and, thus, their overall well-being. The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 has set forth guidelines to safeguard auditory health, and understanding them is crucial for any business.

Where to Use Soft Ear Plugs

Earplugs are an essential tool for safeguarding one's hearing, especially in environments characterised by persistent or sudden loud noises. Here's a deeper dive into their utility across various settings:

Industrial & Work Settings (Construction sites, Workshops, Factories, Manufacturing Units, Labs):

These environments often involve heavy machinery, power tools, or processes that emit high-decibel noises. Business owners have a duty of care to protect their employees' hearing under health and safety regulations. By providing ear protection, they not only ensure a safer workplace but also demonstrate a commitment to employee wellbeing. Workers, on their part, should take the responsibility to wear such protective equipment consistently, ensuring they reduce the risk of long-term hearing damage.

Music & Entertainment (Festivals, Gigs, Clubs):

In these settings, the intensity of music and sound effects can sometimes surpass safe hearing levels. While these venues offer an immersive experience, prolonged exposure without ear protection can lead to temporary or even permanent hearing loss. Venue owners and event organisers should consider offering ear protection as part of their duty of care to both employees and visitors. Attendees, whether they're staff or the public, should be proactive in considering their auditory health, possibly carrying their own earplugs if they frequent such environments often.

Dealing with Difficult Removal or Broken Earplug Fragments

Should you experience discomfort, itching, pain, or any uncommon reactions during or after wearing the earplugs, consult with a medical professional promptly. If you face difficulty in removing the earplugs or if small fragments break off inside the ear, it's essential to see a doctor immediately. Furthermore, if you're unsure about the right ear protection tailored to your needs, professional advice can direct you aptly.

The Versatility of Celox Granules in Wound Care

Military-icon-80px

Tailored for High-Risk Scenarios

Celox Haemostatic Granules are primarily designed for use in high-risk, life-threatening situations where rapid bleeding control is crucial. They have demonstrated effectiveness in managing severe bleeding, be it from a traumatic injury or in a surgical setting. This makes them an invaluable addition to first-aid kits for environments such as hospitals, emergency medical services, military combat zones, and other high-risk scenarios.

Irregular-Wound-Icon-80px-transparent-V2

Using Celox for Complex and Irregular Wounds

Traditional methods of stopping bleeding can be ineffective on irregularly shaped or puncture wounds. Celox Haemostatic Granules, on the other hand, excel in such scenarios.

Wipe-icon-80px-transparent

Removing Celox Post-Application: An Easy Process

The convenience of Celox doesn't stop at the application. Once the bleeding has been controlled, and professional medical attention is available, the granules can be easily removed. The granules are designed to form a gel-like clot that adheres to the wound surface. This clot can be gently rinsed or wiped away with sterile water or saline solution, leaving no residue and minimising any discomfort during the cleaning process.
