Protect Your Ears, Skydivers: A Call to Action from Matthew Allsop

Matthew Allsop, Partner of Harley Street Hearing, and a passionate advocate for audiology, is thrilled to see his hearforyears campaign gaining momentum. This initiative aims to safeguard skydivers from noise-induced hearing loss, a risk that currently lacks sufficient awareness in the skydiving community.

The hearforyears campaign, born out of a brainstorming session with Kevin Dynan, the Safety and Training Officer for British Skydiving, targets skydivers first, with plans to gradually reach higher authorities.

This month, Allsop’s first awareness-raising attempt was featured in the British Skydiving publication, reaching 6,600 UK-based skydivers and 60,000 students.  You can read the full article here.
