12/1/2005 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis publication describes worker noise exposure surveys in coal mines and coal preparation plants, revealing that worker dosimetry, time-motion studies, and equipment noise profiling are important for effective use of administrative controls.
Hearing Loss in the Mining Industry: Overview of the NIOSH Hearing Loss Prevention Program at the Pittsburgh Research Laboratory10/1/2005 - Conference papersThis paper provides an overview of the NIOSH hearing loss prevention program being conducted at NIOSH PRL.
9/1/2005 - Information CircularsWater well drillers are exposed to high levels of noise while working. Drillers and owners can work together to prevent noise-induced hearing loss, and measures can be taken to reduce exposure to hazardous noise.
