Resumen Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) from prolonged occupational exposure to noise continues to rank among the top worldwide work-related ill-health problems. The objective of this study was to provide an overview of incident cases based on work-related audiological ill-health data collected over a 9-year period from occupational physicians (OPs), audiological physicians (APs), general practitioners and otorhinolaryngologists. A total of 2582 estimated cases were received from OPs and 2192 estimated cases of work-related audiological ill-health were received from consultant APs. In more than 95% of the cases, the causal agent was noise. Workers with the highest incidence were older males employed in public administration, defence and the manufacture of metals. Other findings are discussed.
