Abstract
The proceedings of the second Hearing Conservation Conference were presented and included seminars, keynote presentations, poster sessions abstracts, and forums. Subjects covered in seminars included practical noise control and the role of the expert witness in hearing loss claims. Keynote presentations dealt with OSHA and European regulations, hearing conservation programs, design and rating of hearing protection devices, noise control, epidemiological studies on cardiovascular responses to noise exposure, pure tone audiometry in workers exposed to organic solvents, earphones and permissible exposure levels, and current guidelines for OSHA recordability of occupational hearing loss. The poster session abstracts included the use of computers and databases; occupational hearing loss in miners, musicians, construction workers, and others; the interaction of smoking with noise; and physiological characteristics of noise exposure. A forum on oral and written feedback from employees following audiometric evaluation and one on definitions and characterizations of occupational noise induced hearing loss were dealt with.
