The School of Music has identified that some students and staff may be at risk to noise induced hearing loss through exposure to excessive noise. Hearing protection has been identified as the most effective control measure to reduce this risk.

  • Free hearing protection is available at the School of Music front counter, as well as at some learning activities.
  • The UQ Audiology clinic provides discounts to students for specialised, custom-fit musician earplugs.

The School is conducting ongoing testing to identify potential exposure levels throughout all activities. If you believe you are involved in an activity that may produce hazardous noise levels or multiple activities throughout the day involving exposure to loud noise, please notify the course coordinator.
