Our Commitment to Prevention
At Hearing Australia, we’re passionate about our mission to prevent avoidable hearing loss.
In collaboration with government and non-government organisations, industries, and communities, we are developing national strategies that will make real impact in the lives of the people we serve.
We are focused on two key areas:
- preventing noise induced hearing loss in high-risk industries
- improving ear health and hearing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children
Hearing Australia urges action on occupational noise induced hearing loss
When a person is exposed to harmful noises at work, their hearing can be damaged permanently. Hearing Australia is committed to protecting and preserving the hearing of high-risk workers.
Safe Work Toolkit
We're dedicated to helping workplaces protect and preserve the hearing of workers. Remember for everyone's safety, work safely.
Prevention of hearing loss in First Nations Communities
Hearing Australia’s First Nations Action Plan outlines our commitment to enhancing ear health and hearing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
