Abstract
A series of experiments was conducted to determine how the magnitude, pattern, and growth of hearing loss and structural damage were altered as a function of the parameters of noise exposure. Hearing sensitivity was assessed with operant conditioning behavioral techniques and histological evaluation was carried out with light and electron microscopy in plastic embedded flat preparations of the cochleas of chinchillas. Leisure noise exposure outside the workplace was identified, and the risk of noise induced hearing loss was evaluated. Industrial audiometric data were analyzed for large industrial populations. Each of the publications and reports completed during the project period was listed along with the final report. Each of the citations was linked to the section of the final report to which it pertained. The significance of the findings and the relevance to occupational safety and health were briefly described.
