Abstract
Most miners these days will get an audiogram (hearing test) at some point, but what do the results mean? As NIOSH researchers, we've conducted thousands of hearing tests with miners. We noticed that the same questions keep coming up, so we compiled this fact sheet. For more details on audiograms for miners, check the MSHA publication, Audiometric Testing Reference Guide for MSHA's Occupational Noise Exposure Standard available online at: http://www.msha.gov/1999noise/audiobook731.pdf
