An employer or someone providing goods or services has a duty to make reasonable adjustments. The duty means that organisations must not wait for a disabled person to use their goods and services. They must preempt the requirements of disabled people and continually look at any reasonable adjustments required going forward. The underpinning word is reasonable and organisations do not have to do more than that.

Part of the requirement is the provision of auxiliary aids or services and for hearing loss that could be an induction loop or BSL Interpreter.

Business / Organisations

We have 12 year history of advising, supplying and installing induction loops to retail, councils, schools, colleges, universities, places of worship, banks, Police, Fire Service, hotels, guest houses to name a few.


We already supply equipment through the Jobcentre Plus Access to Work scheme but we are more than happy to discuss or advise about workplace equipment and solutions for employee's with hearing loss.

For advice or to discuss further please call 0345 6520167 or email info@ihear.co.uk
