Choose the best hearing protection for your workers exposed to noise

Everything started with an issue in the workplace

When it comes to hearing preservation in the workplace, providing employees with hearing protectors is usually the last resort. When administrative or structural measures have yielded no results, employees are provided with disposable or reusable earplugs.

The issue: in the best case, these devices are not worn properly, and in the worst case, they're not worn at all. Not only do at-risk workers become progressively deaf, but they also suffer high levels of stress and an increase in blood pressure, causing a decrease in productivity.

What about your company ?

Since 1992, over 31,000 companies have switched from standard earplugs or earmuffs, to Cotral Lab's custom hearing protectors; most notably 3M (Aearo™ and Peltor™) and Honeywell (Bilsom™ or Howard Leight™).

The reason for this shift is simple : they understand that disposable and reusable earplugs, and earmuffs, are often worn improperly, or even worse, they're not worn at all. After trying Cotral Lab's custom earplugs, these companies have adopted them, and they have never gone back.

As of 2018, over 2 millions workers across four continents are glad to wear custom hearing protectors.

Whether you are a multinational company with worldwide facilities, or a local SME with a handful of employees who are exposed to noise, the Cotral Lab solution is your best option for protecting the hearing of your most important asset, your employees, the entire time they're exposed to harmful noise.

Laurent Capellari, Chairman and CEO

"Losing my ability to hear has always been one of my main concerns. At age 2, I suffered from recurring otitis media, or middle ear infections. As a teenager, I became a frequent visitor to the ear specialist’s office for my ear problems. The pain was a serious issue, and I was really afraid of becoming completely deaf.

In Australia, approximately 30% of the workforce is dangerously exposed to noise levels over 85dB. Some disposable earplugs are ineffective, uncomfortable, isolating, and are very difficult to fit properly. In such cases, it is impossible to wear these devices even two hours a day. If you were to wear them for just 30 minutes, you would understand. Yet everyone believes they are doing well. Sooner or later, hearing loss will affect all who use inadequate protection.

In 1992, at age 23, I decided I would change the lives of workers so they never become deaf because of noise exposure in the workplace.
Day after day, my main motivation and satisfaction has been to serve all employees exposed to noise and provide them with the best hearing protectors they could have ever imagined."
... Because protecting your workforce's hearing is essential!
