Oakwood Fuels is to offer a day of hearing screening and ear health awareness to its employees on 31 May.

The event will see the charity Deafness Research UK deliver free screenings and provide information about good ear health to the waste management firm’s employees.

The day is sponsored by healthcare provider Bupa and the Big Lottery Fund.

Vivienne Michael, chief executive at Deafness Research UK, said: “Whether you have experienced exposure to loud sounds at work or play, we hope the opportunity to get a hearing health check-up will support health and safety in the workplace and encourage anyone concerned to come forward.”
