Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting Requirements - Final Rule [USA]
This final rule (effective 1 Jan. 2003) revises the hearing loss recording provisions of the Occupational Injury and Illness Recording and Reporting Requirements rule published on 19 Jan. 2001 (see CIS 01-1277). The criteria for recording hearing loss cases are modified in several ways. The principal change is that Standard Threshold Shifts (10dB shifts in hearing acuity) that have resulted in a total 25dB level of hearing above audiometric zero (averaged over 1000, 2000 and 4000Hz) are to be recorded.
