Título original Beeinflusst das Tragen von Gehörschutz die Erkennung von akustischen Signalen? [en alemán]
Información bibliográfica June 1980, Vol.30, No.6, p.204-212. Illus. 25 ref.
Resumen Introduction: modifications of acoustic parameters due to wearing hearing protectors; process of perception of an acoustic signal. Most of this article is devoted to considerations on the relations between the audibility of a signal and the effective hearing threshold when hearing protectors are worn in a noisy environment. Considerations on the problem of diminished ability to identify characteristic noises indicating an incident in the production process. The wearing of hearing protectors results in a decrease in the capacity of hearing and identification, which is frequency-linked. It is advisable to wear hearing protectors with noise-attenuation characteristics which are independent of the frequency of signals.
