||Oct.-Nov. 1972, No.10-11, p.361-364. Illus. 8 ref.
||In a practical experiment with the exposure test laid down by the directive of the Association of German Engineers, VDI 2058, page 2 (see CIS 71-1150), a study was made of persons employed in noisy premises. Details are given of the examinations carried out and of their results together with information on the difficulties encountered (need for a quiet examination room, small number of persons meeting the necessary criteria, length of time required). It is concluded that audiometric testing can be carried out during working hours but that the selection criteria for the detailed medical examination should be modified to ensure that the examining physician is not overwhelmed.
