The AHL have royal patronage from The Duke of Edinburgh and have around 20,000 members. They are regularly lobbying government on decisions regarding hearing matters, and have a very effective press department for media coverage of matters concerning hearing loss and how to protect our hearing.
Action on Hearing Loss is undoubtedly the best choice for sound professionals to offer support, so we are pleased that they are as excited as we are to establish a link with the IPS.
In addition to providing technical support on sound matters, we expect to raise awareness amongst IPS members about protecting their own hearing. We intend to liaise on many projects with the AHL in future – ranging from support for campaigns to maintain quality sound in broadcast radio and TV, to helping AHL members better understand various issues in sound technology.

A current project on the AHL web site very relevant to our industry is their Loud Music Campaign: http://tinyurl.com/6w2posy
