Abstract Audiometric tests and other examinations (reaction times to light and sound, mental performance tests, arterial pressure) were performed in 15 apprentice turners aged 16-18 exposed to a workshop noise of 85-87dBA. The tests and examinations were carried out over 2 weeks: no earplugs were used during the first week, but were worn during the second. Comparison of the results shows the positive effect of wearing ear protectors.
