ProtectHear® have been excellent in providing a flexible service to ensure our ship crew get the tailored hearing protection they need. The ear inserts that ProtectHear® provided have proven to be very popular with our staff and particular useful in our high noise areas where double protection is used.
After undertaking a very successful trial in 2007 we selected ProtectHear® personally moulded earplugs for our hearing protection. Employees at all levels use the product, both in the facilities and on-site.
The product protects from factory noise but enables workers to still hear warning bells, which is critical. Although background noise is reduced, speech can still be heard, which is extremely useful.
Employees really like them as they are comfortable and perform well. Our staff appreciate the product as it is more personal and better quality compared to disposables.
Working with ProtectHear® is a really good experience. Everything is organised well and any questions are answered straight away. They also go the extra mile by helping us promote a sensible health and safety culture internally; they have been involved in some very helpful toolbox talks which clearly state the benefits of the product to our employees when it comes to hearing protection”.
We tried a variety of hearing protection before we contacted At Source QX Ltd who offered their ProtectHear® range, these are individually moulded to the user and offer outstanding comfort and protection. We carried out a trial with the ProtectHear® and we haven’t looked back since, the company’s professionalism and expertise is commendable, they applied no pressure to purchase, it was simple good advice.
Knauf Immingham has used ProtectHear® moulded hearing protection for over 5 years now. The service is very reliable and popular with our employees. The moulded hearing protectors have a lifespan of 5 years before a new moulding has to be taken. Providing our employees with this form of hearing protection has shown considerable savings as we no longer have to carry stock levels of other hearing protectors such as ear muff type or disposable hearing protection.
ProtectHear® do their utmost to accommodate the shift patterns that Knauf employees work. The ProtectHear® representative has been known to attend site to take just a single moulding. When we contact ProtectHear® they respond very quickly to our demands. Turn around from a moulding being taken to delivery of the finished product to the employee is very fast and efficient. The moulded hearing protection ProtectHear® is also very competitively priced. We have never had any problems with ProtectHear® services and would recommend them highly to anyone who is thinking of providing moulded hearing protection to their employees.
We are using ProtectHear® in a new Gas fired Power Station that opened four years ago. I prefer ProtectHear® to disposable ear plugs as they are very easy to fit and comfortable in use and an added bonus is that the cost savings are genuine compared to disposables. When you start to do the maths in comparison to using 4-5 pairs of disposable earplugs a day the money saving over the life span of the ProtectHear® which are purchased with a one off payment becomes quite significant.
The team at ProtectHear® go out of their way to help us, especially when it comes to scheduling visits and fittings. They are large enough to cope with big organisations like ours yet still offer a friendly and personal service and will schedule visits strategically so we are able to mould and fit the product with a minimum of fuss and disruption.
