Abstract Government order of 31 January 1989, issued pursuant to article R. 232-8-4 of the French Labour Code (published in the Journal officiel on 8 February 1989). Medical supervision includes: training and information of exposed workers with regard to the risks involved and the personal and collective means of protection available; the clinical and audiometric examination of workers before assignment to a noise-exposed workplace; periodic medical examinations and audiometric checkups. The results of these examinations and checkups, presented collectively, may be communicated to the committee responsible for safety, health and working conditions, to the Labour Directorate, to the occupational risk prevention departments of the Regional Health Insurance Funds and to professional organisations concerned with occupational safety and health and working conditions.
