||The effects of occupational noise on hearing: Recent developments
||The Loss Prevention Council, 140 Aldersgate Street, London EC1A 4HY, United Kingdom, Apr. 1991. 7p. 11 ref.
||There in an apparent contradiction between the results of two recent studies into the effects of noise on hearing ability. While some theoretical studies indicate that the effects of long-term noise exposure on hearing have been underestimated, a report on an audiometric study of miners indicates that a lifetime exposure to 90dB(A) has no adverse effect on hearing. The two sets of results are discussed along with their implications for the lowering of noise action levels for worker exposure and resulting cost implications for insurers and the insured.
