The relationship of changes in hearing acuity to long-term exposure to industrialnoise was studied. The workers studied were employed in textile mills; wood products and sheet metal products manufacturing; brush, shoe, and clothing factories; and printing. Overall noise levels in these operations ranged from approximately 75 to 110 decibels.
