Abstract
This presentation will review the results of a study using a series of focus group discussions with hearing impaired construction workers and miners as well as interviews with their supervisors. These workers and their supervisors have the closest, most detailed view of the particular communication and hearing challenges hearing- impaired employees face in their workplace. Their views can help focus problem-solving efforts and identify issues that might otherwise have been missed.
