Accidents

1.2%

1/8th of work-related accidents are attributable to noise exposure in the workplace as well as noise-induced hearing loss.

Based on the experience of some 240,000 person-years of observation.

1 in 30 Death

Noise was direct cause of death in every 30 fatal work-related accidents.

788 cases were analyzed total in this report, resembling an analysis of reports kept by the Worker’s Compensation Board of Quebec. In accident reports where noise was mentioned explicitly (64) – either directly, indirectly, or in a general manner 34% (22/64) mention noise as a direct cause of the fatal accident.

Hearing Loss

0%

While almost 37 percent of workers in the oil and gas drilling industry show signs of hearing loss, almost all of them report wearing hearing protection. This implies that the hearing protection being worn is not working.

More than half of those workers are 35 and under, showing that hearing loss in these industries is not simply a by-product of aging.

0%

Result of a study on 2691 factory workers (automotive) shows 42% of workers are showing hearing loss according to OSHA recommendations.

Unfortunately, 76% of workers reported their hearing ability as excellent or good. Self-reported hearing ability was poorly related to results of audiometry. Although this group of workers was employed in a regulated environment and served by a hearing conservation program, hearing loss was highly prevalent.
