Spring is here and summer will closely follow. It's time to get the lawn mower out of the garage and fire up the weed eater that has been leaning in the corner of the storage shed all winter. We all need to keep in mind that our hearing can be at risk whenever we are operating these tools. Take the time to safely plan your jobs and take the time to wear hearing protection.
Whatever type of ear plug you prefer make sure you take the time to put them in place. before exposing your hearing to loud noises. Once hearing is lost it is lost forever. Don't let yours be damaged.
