New Hearing Aids Help Keep Andrew Safe on the Job

A snowy road.

Andrew helps keeps the roads safe in the winter, working in snow removal and trucking salt. Thanks to funding for hearing aids from WorkBC Assistive Technology, Andrew can stay safe on the job.

“Thank you for your assistance and support,” he says. “Without your support for the hearing aids, I may not have been able to continue my career as a Truck Driver due to safety issues and licensing requirements.”

Andrew has hearing loss, and was referred to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services by the WorkBC Centres in Prince George and Terrace to help cover the costs of a new set of hearing aids. He applied and was quickly approved for funding.

Andrew says he “certainly would” recommend WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others

“Having new hearing aids has increased my ability to function safely in a work setting,” he shares.

“I am able to hear instructions and communicate with my dispatch and coworkers. The new hearing aids are linked to my phone which makes it easier to communicate. I can now hear any noises that my work truck makes. This helps me to identify any safety issues and mechanical issues.”

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services is operated by Neil Squire. Assistive Technology Services are available to individuals who have a work-related barrier due to a disability or a functional limitation. This may include barriers related to traveling to and from the workplace.
