An estimated 19% of Canadian adults have an least mild hearing loss in the speech-frequency range.
Furthermore, an estimated 35% have some degree of hearing loss in the high-frequency range, which is where age-related hearing loss typically begins. Aging can cause hearing loss, but it can also be caused by hereditary factors, some chronic conditions, noise exposure, medications and other factors.
With so much of the population at an age where they could be experiencing hearing loss, how is your organization ensuring that your spaces don’t present communication barriers and is accessible to all?
If your facilities have service counters, customer checkouts, desks or other furnishings that create separation between your staff and patrons, 1-to-1 hearing loops can help those with hearing loss communicate freely and readily.
