At Feyter Industrial, where machining and construction are part of the daily routine, preserving hearing and ensuring safety are of the utmost importance. Marlon, a working foreman at Feyter Industrial, shares his experiences with HearingCoach and its impact on the company.
Hearing Protection: Not a Luxury, but a Necessity
In an environment where the noise level exceeds 80 decibels, hearing protection is not a luxury but a necessity. Marlon emphasizes the importance of comfort and quality when it comes to hearing protection. For Feyter Industrial, where approximately 150 individuals are engaged in industrial repairs, construction, machining, and machine design, safety is not just a priority; it’s a responsibility.
Quality and Comfort Take Center Stage at Feyter Industrial
“Quality and wearing comfort are essential. Cheap doesn't surpass comfort because if it's not comfortable, you won't wear it.”
That’s why Feyter utilizes custom-made earplugs that not only provide protection against hearing damage but are also pleasant to wear during long workdays. An important aspect for Feyter is the offering from HearingCoach and the flexibility they provide.
“For example, there's the choice between hard and soft plugs, depending on the employee's preference.”
The ability to make adjustments based on different work environments and individual preferences is one of the reasons for Feyter’s collaboration with HearingCoach.
More Than Just Providing Hearing Protection
What sets HearingCoach apart is not only their commitment to hearing protection but also their dedication and comprehensive service. HearingCoach goes beyond delivering hearing protection by providing expertise in facilitating complete hearing examinations with detailed measurements and forecasts of potential impact.
This helps Marlon raise awareness of the impact of hearing damage among his colleagues. Fortunately, Marlon personally has no experience with hearing damage, but through these insights, he understands how crucial it is.
Importance of Awareness Regarding the Impact of Hearing Damage
Marlon has witnessed colleagues change their stance, from initially not using hearing protection to consistently wearing it now, indicating how effective and crucial awareness is.
While Feyter mandates their employees to wear hearing protection, it is not always adhered to. Individual discipline on the workplace varies. For instance, external locations may adhere to guidelines and use hearing protection, but it might be overlooked on their own premises. This makes wearing hearing protection a personal responsibility.
“I've always worn them consistently, but now that I'm less active on the shop floor, I notice that I don't always have them in.”
Marlon is very satisfied with the convenience and speed of the service. HearingCoach always thinks along in providing solutions.
“Within no time, I receive a proposal for an audit after sending an email.”
The ability to request emergency checks and expedited deliveries means Feyter has no reason to look for another partner. In fact, HearingCoach is now also authorized to supply hearing protection to another department at Feyter Industrial.
HearingCoach as an Extension of Your Own Organization
What sets the services of HearingCoach apart from other parties is not only their technical expertise but also their advisory role.
“They assist not only in measurements but also provide valuable and personal advice. Awareness is their strength.”
Feyter Industrial not only focuses on quality and sustainability in their work but also on the protection of their employees. Their dedication to hearing protection and safety is reinforced by the partnership with HearingCoach, a relationship based on quality, expertise, and above all: care for the well-being of their team.
