Abstract
In the United States, 10 million people suffer from irreversible noise-induced hearing loss, and 30 million more are exposed to dangerous levels of noise each day. Work-related hearing loss has been one of the most common occupational health conditions in the United States for more than 25 years. Hearing loss can be a seriously disabling condition due to the integral role of hearing in human communication. People often avoid situations in which communication is difficult rather than struggle through. The tendency leads to isolation, difficulties at work, and can have adverse psychological consequences.
