||A comparison of "train-the-trainer" and expert training modalities for hearing protection use in construction
||Feb. 2008, Vol.51, No.2, p.130-137. 13 ref.
||This study compared the effectiveness of noise induced hearing loss prevention training programmes delivered using "Train-the-Trainer" and expert trainer modalities. Participating construction companies were assigned to one of the two modalities. The effectiveness of the modalities was assessed through the use of surveys. The accuracy of self-reported hearing protection device use was also evaluated through on-site observation. Post-training scores for hearing conservation knowledge, perceived barriers, and current and intended future use of hearing protection devices improved significantly for both training modalities. The effectiveness of the training was not found to be dependent on training modality. Other findings are discussed.
