Safety Award for Australian Designed Hearing Technology

Sensear was awarded the 2008 Best Newcomer Award at the Melbourne Safety in Action Conference in Victoria Australia. The the award reflected the potential of Sensear’s technology to dramatically reduce the incidence of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) in the workplace.

NIHL is major health and safety issue in our workplaces particularly for people working in transport, construction, manufacturing and mining industries.

It takes only two minutes exposure to very loud noise before permanent hearing damage takes place. That is an unacceptable risk to employees.

The Sensear developed electronic ear plug allows face to face, mobile phone and two-way radio communication. An ear muff version will be released later in 2008. The products use technology based on sophisticated algorithms which suppress industrial and other very loud noise to a safe level but allow speech to remain clear and audible.

Previously people working in noisy environments could wear hearing protection but they could not effectively communicate with each other. This has been a huge impediment to productivity and safety. The Sensear electronic ear plug has been available in Australia since March 2008 and Europe and the USA since April 2008.

About the Sensear technology: Founded in 2006 in Perth Western Australia, Sensear’s world first technology is based on sophisticated algorithms that suppress industrial and other very loud noise to a safe level but allow speech to remain clear and audible. Sensear has incorporated the technology into the world s first electronic ear plug enabling face to face, mobile phone and two-way radio communication. An ear muff version will be available soon.

This has the potential to dramatically reduce the incidence of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) in the work place. NIHL is the world s most common and costly workplace illness. It cannot be reversed but it can be prevented. Most commonly caused by industrial noise, NIHL can occur also as a result of exposure to loud noise in pubs, nightclubs, concerts and major events.
