Abstract
The use of the ANS/ASA 512.68 method provides more relevant and useful numbers that describe what a person might expect when using hearing protection. However, unless one wears the protection when exposed to hazardous levels of noise, the numbers will be meaningless. Noise-induced hearing loss is entirely preventable.
