A comprehensive strategy for the assessment of noise exposure and risk of hearing impairment
A comprehensive strategy is presented for the evaluation of daily noise exposure level and the assessment of risk of hearing impairment. The risk is defined as the probability for a worker with a given noise exposure history of developing hearing deficit above a given threshold. The strategy uses the concepts of homogeneous groups of exposure and stationarity interval, defined as the period over which the exposure distribution is the same for the members of the group. The number of workers to sample, the number of samples to take for each worker and their duration are discussed. Semi-random sampling is recommended, excluding periods with low noise exposure. Formulae are presented to estimate the daily noise exposure level, its standard error and the corresponding risk of hearing impairment. Topics: exposure evaluation; hazard evaluation; hearing loss; length of exposure; noise level measurement; noise level; prediction.

Effects of combined exposure to noise and toxic substances - Critical review of the literature
This review indicates that the information available on the health effects of the combination of noise and a variety of industrial substances is limited, particularly with respect to assessing occupational risk. Animal studies at high exposure levels indicate that there is a suggestion of some interaction between some substances and noise exposure. However, from the data currently available, inferences cannot be drawn on whether or not interactions would have occurred at lower, more occupationally relevant, levels of exposure. Data from human studies are also inadequate for assessing the combined effects of noise and chemical exposure on hearing. Topics: animal experiments; cadmium; p-dinitrobenzene; styrene; toluene; carbon monoxide; lead; health hazards; heart diseases; literature survey; neurotoxic effects; noise; ototoxic effects; synergism; toxic substances.

Toluene-induced hearing loss among rotogravure printing workers
124 workers exposed to various levels of noise and to an organic solvent mixture of toluene, ethyl acetate and ethanol underwent pure-tone audiometry and immittance audiometry testing. 49 percent had hearing loss. Of the numerous variables analyzed, age and hippuric acid (the biological marker for toluene in urine) met the significance level criteria for their contribution to the development of hearing loss. The odds ratio estimates for hearing loss were 1.07 times greater for each increment of one year of age and 1.76 times greater for each gram of hippuric acid per gram of creatinine. The findings suggest that exposure to toluene has a toxic effect on the auditory system. Topics: age-linked differences; audiometric tests; toluene; ethyl acetate; ethanol; cross-sectional study; determination in air; determination in urine; exposure evaluation; hearing loss; length of exposure; noise level; noise; organic solvents; photogravure printing; synergism.

This article discusses the problem of noise in poultry slaughterhouses. Noise was long considered a secondary problem compared to issues raised by the strict regulations imposed by veterinary services. The article reports the experience of a manufacturer which was successful in reducing noise levels without compromising the bacteriological quality of the production unit, through the use of new materials with improved acoustic absorption properties for floors and walls, and by the isolation of equipment.

Noise, feedback training and visual inspection performance
Performance feedback training is known to have positive effects on the performance of visual inspection tasks in industry. However, when this training is conducted in a controlled environment, the improvements attributed to training may not transfer to an industrial setting because of environmental factors such as noise. The transfer effects of feedback training and practice provided under various conditions of noise were investigated. The major finding was that training and practice under appropriate noise conditions is critical for sensitivity improvements in industrial inspection tasks.

CIS 97-1199 Deurer W., et al.
Improvement of working conditions, safety and health in monumental masonry using masons restoring cathedrals as examples
Verbesserung der Arbeitsbedingungen sowie des Arbeits- und Gesundheitsschutzes für Steinmetzbetriebe am Beispiel einer Dombauhütte [in German]
The dust and noise levels as well as the work postures of monumental masons were determined on several workplaces in Germany. In addition, the air temperatures, humidity and illumination levels were measured. Optimized designs of the workplace and illumination are illustrated. Measures to reduce dust and noise exposure are described in detail.

CIS 97-990 Acoustics - Determination of sound power levels of noise sources using sound intensity - Part 2: Measurement by scanning
Acoustique - Détermination par intensimétrie des niveaux de puissance acoustique émis par les sources de bruit - Partie 2: Mesurage par balayage [in French]
Part 2 of this international standard specifies a method for measuring the component of sound intensity normal to a measurement surface which is chosen so as to enclose the noise source(s) of which the sound power level is to be determined. Contents: scope; normative references; definitions; general requirements; acoustic environment; instrumentation; installation and operation of the source; measurement of normal sound intensity component levels; calculation of sound power level; information to be reported. Annexes: calculation of field indicators; procedure for achieving a desired grade of accuracy; effects of airflow on measurement of sound intensity; effects of sound absorption within the measurement surface; measurement surface and scanning procedure; bibliography.
