||HSE Contract Research Report CRR 3/1988
||A small-scale survey into the use of audiometry in practice
||Health and Safety Executive, St. Hugh's House, Stanley Precinct, Trinity Road, Bootle, Merseyside L20 3QY, United Kingdom, 1988. 50p. Price: GBP 20.00.
||The aim of this survey was to find out why and how audiometry was practiced by various enterprises, and what use was made of audiometric results. Eleven employers and one independent training, safety and medical organisation were visited. The report concludes that among employers who practice audiometry, hearing levels of employees are not deteriorating to a significant extent, thanks to the use of hearing protection; that if hearing threshold levels rise significantly, for whatever reason, they will be detected; that audiometry is an educational tool which brings about more assiduous use of hearing protection.
