Hearing Protection and Communications Solutions for Airlines and Airport Ground Support

As airlines return to pre-pandemic levels of operation, airline efficiencies and performance are being put to the test. Critical communications are a vital component to successful operations. Sensear’s headsets help solve high-noise communication challenges while keeping employees safe by mitigating the risk of industrial hearing loss.

Ground crews, including mechanics, baggage handlers, aircraft provisioning, de-icing, and fuel and ramp services, all spend much of their time in noisy and extreme environments. Working in proximity to the aircraft and other equipment may not have an immediate impact on someone’s hearing loss. Still, with time and exposure, they can experience significant hearing loss without the proper hearing protection.

Hearing damage is preventable, but it cannot be undone. There is no surgery or cure for noise-induced hearing loss. Repeated exposure to high noise levels, such as working near airplane engines, machinery, operating heavy equipment or near conveyor lines, can lead to permanent hearing loss or tinnitus. 

Nearly 42% of airport employees had noise-induced hearing loss, according to a National Library of Medicine survey. More than 65% of maintenance workers and 55% of firemen, who are continuously exposed to aircraft noise, had noise-induced hearing loss.


Sensear is Solving High-Noise Communication Problems for Airports and the Airline Industry

The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide hearing protection to their employees when noise exposure equals or exceeds an 8-hour time-weighted average of 85 dB(A) or more. 

There are a variety of different machines, equipment and activities associated with airlines and airports that can create significant and harmful noise levels, particularly with long-term exposure. That is why providing workers with Sensear’s noise-cancelling headsets and in-ear headsets is critical to mitigating the serious risk of hearing loss. 

Hearing Protection Headsets and Noise-Cancelling Communication Headsets for Airport & Airline Workers

Reducing high-noise levels to safer decibel dB(A) levels to protect ground crews at airports is only part of the mission at Sensear to keep workers safe on the job. In addition to our industry-leading noise-reduction headsets, we also provide workers with 360° situational awareness of their environment. Sensear’s range of Two-Way Radio and/or Bluetooth® Headsets and Earplugs are powered by groundbreaking SENS® (high noise communication) Technology that elevates speech and suppresses dangerous background noise, so workers can hear speech and stay protected in high-noise environments. The result is increased job site safety with enhanced communications and vital 360° situational awareness.

Workers can have seamless conversations whether they are face-to-face, connected via short range, or on their two-way radio or Bluetooth® enabled devices, all while protecting their hearing using high-quality, noise-canceling headsets. Sensear headsets also provide protection and clear communications between operators inside vehicles, throughout the tarmac and gate process.
