||The NIOSH Hearing Loss Simulator is a software training and communication tool for promoting hearing loss prevention. It allows a user or trainer to demonstrate the effects of noise exposure on hearing without experiencing an actual noise-induced hearing loss. Estimates of the effects of different levels of noise exposure are based on the ANSI S3.44 standard, which specifies the predicted hearing loss for noise-exposed populations of individuals based on risk factors that include gender, age, sound levels and years of exposure. This guide explains the major objectives that can be addressed with the simulator and proposes training scenarios that can be applied to real-life occupational situations. The guide explains the simulator's functions in detail.
