Our 2018 Safe Sound Awards launched on May 1.
Safe Sound Awards recognizes “hearing friendly places” nominated by community vote. Hearing friendly locations typically have little or no background music or are designed in a way that allows for the absorption of loud sounds. This means you can have good chat without yelling, have fun without getting overwhelmed by the noise, and meet up with family and friends where the sound levels are inviting!
Best Safe Sound Restaurant – Where do you go to eat and are able to have a good chat without yelling? A common comment about restaurants is that they are often too loud.
Best Safe Sound Family Fun Venue – Where can you take your kids for fun without getting a headache from the noise?
Best Safe Sound Fitness or Recreation Venue – Where can you work up a sweat without getting ringing in your ears?
Best Safe Sound Seniors’ Venue – As a senior, where do you meet up with friends for a visit or your favourite activities? Is the sound in the space manageable and do they provide an assistive listening device if you need it?
Wild Card – Any other venue that offers a sound friendly environment.
