What Is Dangerous Decibels 1

Did you know that there are 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk of hearing loss because of unsafe loud listening levels from personal audio devices, clubs and concerts? (World Health Organization, 2014). You might be unaware that being exposed to loud sounds can damage hearing but in fact, noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) has been the highest notifiable occupational health issue among Malaysian workers in 2014 (Department of Occupational Safety and Health, 2014). 

What is Dangerous Decibels?

Dangerous Decibels is a classroom program conducted by certified Dangerous Decibels educators that uses the principals of inquiry-based learning, aiming to reduce the prevalence of noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus. This evidence-based classroom program has shown to be effective at improving a person’s hearing-health knowledge, listening attitude and behavior to prevent noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus. It is suitable for children, young adults, musicians, factory workers and anyone who is interested in hearing loss prevention.
