Personal music players in the workplace

Personal music players, especially with headphones, may hide noises or auditory cues people need to hear when at work to remain safe. Personal music players may also lead to noise-induced hearing loss.

Our information sheet Personal music players in the workplace outlines the risk factors that need to be considered before allowing workers to put those headphones on.
