Deaf - One Ear

Individuals who are deaf in one ear can do many workplace tasks without accommodation.  However, difficulties may arise when an employee needs to listen to a sound source such as a telephone with one ear while also attending to sounds around them, such as alarms, customer service bells, vehicle and equipment sounds, people approaching from behind, and coworkers or customers who are trying to get the employees attention of communicate with them.
