Title Comparison of hearing loss in the first year of employment in workers assigned to noise-hazard and non-noise-hazard areas at the state prison industries
Bibliographic information Jan. 1982, Vol.43, No.1, p.39-42. Illus. 26 ref.
Abstract Noise abatement and hearing protection procedures implemented in high-noise work areas in the Utah State Prison were evaluated by means of a retrospective matched pair chart study of employees assigned to noise hazard and non-noise hazard areas. No significant difference in hearing loss between the two groups, after one year of exposure, was found. The noise abatement and instruction in hearing protection programme was effective in controlling the problem.
