What does HearingCoach do?

We are the missing link when it comes to preventive hearing healthcare.

We are an organisation who focus on the prevention of hearing damage caused by loud music or noise. Incorporating Accredited Service Providers in the chain lowers the barriers that prevent (early) detection, creates improved awareness of the risks and fosters motivation for protecting one's hearing. We also create the perfect match between preventive and curative care.

Our approach and techniques used are scientifically substantiated and recorded in a preventive hearing healthcare program, called the Healthy Hearing Program. This program was lauded by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) as Best Practice (EU-OSHA panel report).

Companies, as well as individuals, have access to our Accredited Service Providers.
