I work in India for a US based company.
Employees are encouraged to present "safety moment" before certain meetings to encourage / promote safe working habits and to keep the work environment safe.
I came to know about a hearing condition called
tinnitus. This occurs when a person is exposed to excessive sound for a prolonged period of time.
Most of the folks in my office ride to work (listening to music using earphones) at a volume higher than required to cancel out the traffic noise. Most of them also listen to music while working (we have no restrictions on earphone usage at work - saw this in some questions). I believe this habit leaves them exposed to conditions which might result in hearing problems in future. I read this article online. The article says music for more than 90 mins @ 80%+ volume is dangerous toward hearing.
Would it be appropriate to spread awareness to the team by sharing this information during a safety moment (~5 mins) which happens before a meeting?
The reason I ask this question is because, I'm the person who asked this question and there were mixed reactions from the group. I did not pursue my idea in the former question because of the mixed reaction. I'm following suite this time too. I do not want to take a step in the wrong direction when I interact with the team in a formal meeting, hence, this question.
