||Comparison of the efficiency and comfort of two personal protection systems against noise
||Comparaison de l'efficacitÚ et du confort de deux protecteurs individuels contre le bruit [in French]|
||1992, Vol.53, No.2, p.125-129. Illus. 2 ref.
||To evaluate the efficiency of a personal hearing protector it is necessary to consider not only its attenuation spectrum, but also its comfort level, because it might have to be worn for a long period of time. This study compared these two aspects in foam ear plugs and moulder ear protectors. Attenuation was better with the foam plugs, but moulded ear protectors also afforded sufficient protection. On the other hand, moulded ear protectors were more comfortable because of their better ergonomic design, and are recommended for this reason.
