To help prevent more cases of Industrial Deafness, the Noise at Work Act 1989 was introduced. This Act put in place rules relating to health and safety in the workplace which must be adhered to. Those rules combined with advances in technology have created quieter workplaces and incidences of industrial deafness are now much rarer. In general workplaces are a safer place to be now than they have been in the past.
