Effectiveness of noise at work regulations

The Noise at Work Regulations 1989 and the Control of Noise at Work Regulations
2005 (the Regulations) are designed to minimise risk of occupational
noise-induced hearing loss in the UK. The study "Epidemiological evidence for
the effectiveness of the noise at work regulations" examined their
effectiveness in a longitudinal field study, where participants were seen
annually over a period of 3 years. Audiometric and otoacoustic emission
measures were obtained in 154 recruits aged 18-25 years.
