Abstract:
This report describes the outcomes of an investigation of the key factors that influence the effective control of occupational noise and prevention of occupational noise induced hearing loss (ONIHL). The overall aim of
the project was to provide stakeholders with a greater understanding of why a preventable condition
such as ONIHL still occurs among Australian workers despite the fact that each jurisdiction in Australia
has regulations for exposure to occupational noise. The findings will also assist stakeholders in the
design, implementation and evaluation of strategies and interventions for facilitating more effective
occupational noise control.
