Hearing protection is used to reduce  or attenuate the  sound reaching the wearer’s ear, and so reduce the risk of hearing damage from excessive noise. 

The effectiveness of hearing protection is often limited by personal and workplace factors, and it can reduce the audibility of warning sounds. 

For these reasons hearing protection must be selected and used with care and is not to be used as an alternative to reducing the noise in the workplace.
