The Noise at Work Regulations 1989 were supposed prevent millions of British workers from being exposed to dangerous levels of noise at work. This is not the case for BT engineers who use oscillators and amplifiers whilst testing defects in lines. If your hearing has been permanently damaged after using these equipment then you may be eligable to make a claim for compensation. Get in touch with us today to see if you have claim for compensation for your hearing loss.
Also known as ‘green sets’ and ‘yellow sets’, oscillators transmit a constant high pitched sound through a headset, allowing the engineer to listen for changes in tone to track faults in the cables.
In 2010 BT admitted liability for the excessive noise produced from their oscillators. Since then we have won compensation for BT engineers for the loss of their hearing.
If you believe that your hearing has been affected after using BT's tone sets, then speak to our specialist hearing loss solicitors. They will help you win the compensation you deserve for your hearing loss.
