What will the program achieve?
Research Goal 1.6 - Develop a survey instrument to evaluate training effectiveness

Lessons learned from work in the construction industry are being applied to the development of new research efforts focused on shipyard workers. Baseline data provided by shipyard stakeholders indicate that these workers experience an extremely high incidence of noise-induced hearing loss. Model training programs will be established and the survey instrument will be used to evaluate and predict the effectiveness of these programs. Initial efforts will take place in U.S. Navy shipyards. Plans are also underway to follow these efforts with studies at civilian shipyards.
