Health Tip: Cope With Hearing Difficulties at Work

Last Updated: April 23, 2018.

(HealthDay News) -- A hearing problem can make it difficult to be productive at work.

The AARP offers advice on what to do if this applies to you:

  • Ask for a desk that is away from background noise.
  • Reduce noise reverberations by placing a small rug under your chair or by installing noise-absorbing panels on your walls.
  • Request a phone with closed captioning or increased volume capability.
  • Consider noise cancelling earbuds.
  • Request an agenda before a meeting and a copy of the meeting notes afterward.
