Título Group mean hearing threshold changes in a noise-exposed industrial population using personal hearing protectors
Información bibliográfica Jan. 1987, Vol.48, No.1, p.23-27. Illus. 9 ref.
Resumen The audiometric test data of 265 employees in one facility were studied to determine group mean hearing threshold changes. The data covered 7 to 13 years. During this time, the population was exposed to workplace noise levels of 86 to 103dBA. Personal hearing protection was used. Essentially no change in the mean threshold hearing level was found. Certain other hearing conservation programme effectiveness indicators were also used to evaluate this population. The results of these evaluations generally follow the trends for effective programmes.
