SAC members are concerned that some toys have the potential to harm children's hearing.
In Canada, regulation exists under the Hazardous Products Act that bans toys emitting noise levels exceeding 100 decibels (dB). While SAC supports Health Canada’s efforts to protect our children’s hearing, we believe that 100 dB is an unsafe level, and noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) could be the result. The 100 dB level needs to be re-examined and researched to protect our children.
