    What is noise-induced hearing loss?

    Industrial deafness, including noise-induced hearing loss, tinnitus and acoustic shock disorder, is caused by long-term exposure to excessive noise. Employers have a duty of care and to provide them with the correct personal protective equipment for use while carrying out their duties. If you have previously served in the armed forces, military, ministry of defence, royal navy or the royal air force for three or more years and are now suffering from problems with your hearing, you could be suffering from work-related hearing loss and could be entitled to £1000s in compensation.

    As with many cumulative work-related illnesses, the symptoms of industrial deafness often go unnoticed in the early stages, but they worsen over time. Many people are unaware their symptoms have been caused by their work, and often put them down to the simple process of ageing. But these symptoms can be disabling and isolating, and are generally irreversible.

    Things we're commonly asked

    Like any employers, the armed forces and the military have responsibility to provide employees with protective equipment, training and advice to prevent hearing loss and injuries wherever possible. Hearing loss is irreversible, so it’s incredibly important employers follow the correct procedures to prevent hearing loss and tinnitus.

    There are a variety of sources of noise that are unavoidable during military service – such as explosions, machines and gunfire – and with constant excessive exposure without the correct hearing protection, can cause permanent noise damage.

    If you haven’t been provided with any information on the risk noise-induced hearing loss, or protective equipment, your employer’s negligence could have put you at risk and you could be entitled to compensation.

    Yes it’s possible to make a civil claim, even if you have already made a successful or unsuccessful claim with AFCS or WPS.

    However, it’s important to note, if you have previously received compensation with AFCS, this will be taken into consideration when calculating the additional compensation if your civil claim is successful.

    If you wish to make a claim for compensation against your current employer, any pay-out will be made by their insurer, not the company itself.
