Title Development of a hearing handicap by personnel in a pressworks
Original title Evolution d'un handicap auditif du personnel d'un atelier de presses [in French]
Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 1991, No.45, p.43-47. Illus. 4 ref.
Abstract An evaluation was made of the development of the overall risk of hearing damage in a French pressworks. A significant deterioration in the hearing of the pressworks employees was observed, in particular in audiometric tests performed 10yrs after the previous one. These observations suggest, above all, the need for collective technical control measures which may only be devised after the establishment of an accurate dosimetric mapping of noise in the workshop.
