Occupational Hearing Loss and Presbycusis

  • November 01, 2018

The Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) recently published a review of the literature on the links between occupational hearing loss and presbycusis (hearing loss due to aging). The objective of this study was to (1) determine whether exposure to noise can accelerate the process of presbycusis; (2) establish whether the use of correction factors can enable occupational hearing loss and presbycusis to be differentiated; (3) assess the progression of hearing loss after the worker is no longer exposed to workplace noise. To that end, the researchers analysed the content of some 30 scientific studies published since 2000.
