At VeiligGoed we have an extensive range hearing protection. Depending on your work situation, we can recommend the most effective hearing protection. This will allow your employees to safely and comfortably carry out their work. 

Noise is part of the job. Yet, too much noise is harmful. Hearing protection is thus essential! In addition, it is required by law to wear hearing protection from 85 dB.

There are different solutions for protecting your ears. Each solution has its own advantages. Good orientation is therefore important. The main thing is that you take the noise volume in the workplace as a starting point. You can measure this yourself by use of an app. The hearing protection must bring this volume back to an average of around 80 decibels.  

Choosing hearing protection

Types of hearing protection

Disposable hearing protection – Damping: 10-15dB.

The best known and simplest hearing protection are disposable earplugs. They are squeezed between the fingers and applied into the ear. Once applied, the plug will expand again, ensuring that the noise will be dampened.

Earplugs - Damping: 15-25 dB 

These earplugs will last longer. They reduce the noise by around 20 decibel and have an integrated filter that keeps harmful noise outside the ear. The wearer will keep hearing the most important noises. Depending on the use, a specific filter can be chosen. 

Otoplastics – Damping: +/- 25dB 

Every ear canal is different. As a result, sound can often 'leak through' despite hearing protection. Fitted hearing protection (orator otoplastics) is completely fitted to your ear. It seals the ear canal perfectly and also feels very comfortable. In addition, the otoplastics hard-wearing so they can last up to six years. This hearing protection is also available with built-in filter. This allows you to still pick up important signals and conversations. It is important to test the function regularly as the ear canal can grow. 

Our otoplastics are optionally available with a bluetooth module.

Earmuffs – Damping: <25dB 

Earmuffs shut off the entire ear and thus offer good protection. The earmuffs are available with different damping levels or even with integrated speakers. The earmuffs also come in models that can be attached to a helmet. In case of compulsory use of helmets, you will, as such, still be able to adequately wear your hearing protection. Please do ensure that the helmet and the hearing protection match. Read the applicable instruction, so as to ensure being sufficiently protected.


It appears that there is little support for wearing hearing protection, because it is found to be uncomfortable. Therefore, it is important to give thought to the wearing comfort, so that the support can be increased. Thus, you should involve employees in making the right choice.


Good maintenance of hearing protection is very important. Failing to maintain may cause infection or deteriorate the damping capacity. Inspection and cleaning are, as such, essential. For the more expensive hearing protection, such as ear moulds, you can have a (free) leaking test carried out.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is important to check your hearing protection annually. Sometimes your ear canal can grow, causing the otoplasty no longer seals completely. As a result, sound 'leaks through'. If your hearing protection is not checked in time, you will therefore be working unprotected. This is why we offer free checks. 

During an inspection (or leakage test) we check the functioning of the ear mould. We check the damping level of the hearing protection. If the damping is below the lower limit, then the ear mould must be replaced. If this happens within two years after purchase, the ear mould will be replaced free of charge!
