||Contents of this MD thesis: description and statistics of the French inland waterways fleet in 1982, notes on new vessels (self-propelled barges, push-tugs), freight, personnel employed. Results are given of 76 audiograms of workers performed in 1981, indicating incipient deafness, especially in young subjects. Measurements on board push-tugs indicate an almost continuous noise level above 80dB. Special medical supervision of these workers, including regular audiometry, is recommended.
