Our mission: protecting your employees' hearing health

Everything started with an occupational issue

When it comes to hearing conservation program in the workplace, providing employees with hearing protection devices is usually the last resort. When administrative or structural measures have yielded no results, employees are provided with disposable or reusable earplugs.

The issue: in the best case, these hearing protectors are not worn properly, and in the worst case, they're not worn at all. Not only do at-risk workers become progressively deaf, but they also suffer high levels of stress and an increase in blood pressure, causing a decrease in productivity.

The health issue is the reason for the creation of Cotral Lab; with a clear mission to prevent employees exposed to noise levels between 80 and 120 dB from becoming deaf.

What about your company?

The reason for this shift is simple: they understood that disposable, reusable earplugs or earmuffs are often worn improperly, or even worse, they're not worn at all. After trying Cotral Lab's custom earplugs, these companies have adopted them, and they have never gone back.

As of 2017, over 1.7 million workers across four continents are glad to wear their Cotral Lab's custom hearing protection devices.

Whether you are a multinational company with worldwide facilities, or a local SME with a few hundred employees who are exposed to noise, the Cotral Lab solution is your best option for protecting the hearing of your main asset, your employees, the entire time they're exposed to harmful noise.

Laurent Capellari, Chairman and CEO

Losing my ability to hear has always been one of my main concerns. At age 2, I suffered from recurring otitis. As a teenager, I became a frequent visitor to the otolaryngologist’s office for my ear ventilation tubes and paracenteses. The pain was a serious issue, and I was really afraid of becoming completely deaf.

In the USA, 30 million people are dangerously exposed to over 85dB. Their disposable earplugs are ineffective, uncomfortable, isolating, and are very difficult to fit properly. In such conditions, it is impossible to wear these devices even two hours a day. If you were to wear them for just 30 minutes, you would understand. Yet everyone believes they are doing well. Sooner or later, hearing loss will affect all who use inadequate protection.

At age 23, in 1992, I decided I would change the lives of workers so they never become deaf because of noise exposure in the workplace.
Day after day, my main motivation and satisfaction is to serve all professionals and provide them with the best hearing protectors they could have ever imagined.
... Because protecting your workforce's hearing is essential!
