Pourquoi effectuer des examens audiométriques en usines bruyantes
AbstractEvaluating the hearing status of populations of industrial workers in Québec raised the question of the effectiveness of ongoing hearing conservation programs at large and of monitoring audiometry in particular. The weaknesses of these testing programs are illustrated by means of a set data from a plant. This critical look is further supported by an analysis of the assumptions underlying hearing conservation in noise including the function of monitoring audiometry in this context. Guidelines for an optimal use of hearing tests in industry are presented.
