Occupational Noise-induced Hearing Loss in Australia

Occupational noise-induced hearing loss (ONIHL) is a significant health and economic problem in Australia. Between July 2002 and June 2007 there were about 16 500 successful workers’ compensation claims for industrial deafness involving permanent impairment due to noise. The economic burden of ONIHL is borne by workers and their families, business owners and managers, and the wider society.
