    Yes the OP stated that he was still in school.. BUT that is not what his question was about. His question was about what the environment is or would be like AFTER he finishes school and is IN the workplace... and how that would affect his already damaged hearing (HOH)... he's not worried about the communication in the classroom.

    I took industrial tech, wood tech and shop classes... ALL required hearing protection as soon as you walked in the door, machines running or not.

    Wearing hearing protection is no different than being deaf other than a hearie can still hear somewhat... so its irrelevant to not wear hearing protection, then complain that youre losing your hearing being careless . plain and simple.
    Everyone is acting like they cant speak up or yell... Go to a construction zone, an auto plant....EVERYONE YELLS !

    Face the fact or quit whining, you are being prepared for a workforce in the industry... either you love it or hate it, in other words work it or quit.
