The arrival of summer also means the time for outdoor activities.However, many outdoor activities are accompanied by noise, which may cause damage to your hearing and may cause hearing loss.
Summer activities that can cause damage to hearing include:
· Yacht: This activity has a lot of noise, and the normal noise level can reach 80 decibels.Therefore, when riding a yacht, you should stay away from the motor and the speed should not be too high.
Motorboat: The noise level can reach 85 decibels, and the noise level can exceed 105 decibels when driving at full speed.Ear protectors should be used when performing this activity.
· Motorcycle: It is also a noisy activity, the noise level can reach 85 decibels or higher.Therefore, when riding a motorcycle, you should use a helmet whether for safety reasons or to protect your hearing.
· Hunting: The noise of a shotgun can reach 140 decibels, which may be the activity with the highest noise level, so ear protection is essential.
· Golf: Titanium clubs will make a loud noise when they collide with the ball, which may cause hearing damage.Therefore, earplugs should be used when performing this activity.
Use ear protectors
The maximum noise level that the ear can withstand is 85 decibels.
The noise level of the above summer activities is between 80 decibels and 140 decibels. If you stay in such a noise environment for a long time, your hearing will be damaged.
The louder the noise, the harder the ears can bear.
Therefore, we recommend the use of ear protectors in activities where the noise level exceeds 85 decibels.
