Carve out some time & learn how you can still enjoy Halloween activities while also protecting your hearing

Halloween is a beloved holiday celebrated by people of all ages. However, amidst the fun and frights, there’s a hidden danger that many people may not consider – the potential for hearing loss.

Some common sources of noise-related concerns during Halloween include:

1. Fireworks: Fireworks displays are a staple of Halloween celebrations, but they can produce ear-piercing sounds that exceed safe decibel levels.

2. Costume Accessories: Masks and props with built-in speakers or sound effects can emit loud and sudden noises. These noises, over time, can lead to noise induced hearing loss.

3. Haunted Houses: Many haunted attractions use loud sound effects, screams, and startling surprises to create a terrifying experience.

4. Parties and Parades: Halloween parties and parades can be filled with loud music, cheering, and revelry.

Even this Jack-o-lantern knows wearing headphones is a gourd idea!

When your ears are exposed to loud sounds, the delicate hair cells in your inner ear can become damaged or die, which can lead to hearing loss.

Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is cumulative, meaning that the more you expose yourself to loud noises, the greater the risk of permanent damage.

In order to protect your ears, consider:

  • Wearing earplugs and earmuffs
  • Keeping a safe distance from noisy events
  • Taking breaks in order to limit exposure to loud noise
  • Lowering the volume when possible

By taking simple precautions such as wearing earplugs and being mindful of the volume of Halloween-related sounds, you can protect your ears and enjoy the holiday safely.

After all, the only thing scarier than the ghosts and ghouls of Halloween is the thought of losing your hearing due to preventable noise exposure.

Stay safe, and have a spook-tacular Halloween!
