Noise-induced hearing loss

Noise-induced hearing loss has been identified as a priority disorder under the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 20122022. Noise-induced hearing loss (excluding acoustic shock) results primarily from continuous exposure to noise levels for a number of years. The industries most susceptible to noise-induced hearing loss in Comcare's jurisdiction include transport, construction and Defence.

Comcare has further information on noise-induced hearing loss and actions that can be undertaken by persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), supervisors, managers and workers to help identify and mitigate the sources of noise in the workplace.
