ASA S12.13 TR-2002 (R2016)

     

ASA Technical Report: Evaluating the Effectiveness of Hearing Conservation Programs through Audiometric Data

Describes methods for evaluating the effectiveness of hearing conservation programs in preventing occupational noise-induced hearing loss by using techniques for audiometric data base analysis. The rationale is given for using the variability of threshold measurements in annual monitoring audiograms as the basis for judging effectiveness. Guidelines are discussed concerning how to select a restricted data base to which the analysis procedures will be applied. Specific procedures for data analysis are defined, and criterion ranges are given for classifying program effectiveness as acceptable, marginal, or unacceptable. Sample results for industrial audiometric data bases contributed to Working Group S12/WG12 are included as an annex for reference and illustration.
