Now I'll never get served at a busy bar :-(
Campaigners have attacked the music and entertainment industry for not preparing measures to protect the hearing of bar and club workers.
The Royal National Institute for Deaf People said staff working where loud music was played should get ear plugs.
A poll of 200 businesses showed that over half of employers have no plans to make hearing protection available - despite new laws coming in next year.
But industry representatives said a "common-sense" solution was needed.
Under EU directives, firms have to ensure staff are protected where noise exceeds 85 decibels. ..................http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/6625723.stm
