This report investigates the status of State and federal workers compensation programs for noise induced hearing loss and the equity and effectiveness of their hearing loss claims provisions. Presented is a detailed examination of State and federal hearing loss claims activity, existing compensation claims procedures, their scientific and technical basis, and some of the background judicial decisions and medical, social, political, and economic forces historically influenced in the development of compensation programs for noise induced hearing loss. Included as well are recommendations and suggestions for further research and the incorporation of less restrictive and more technically appropriate compensation provisions and criteria to improve the technical basis of State and federal compensation programs.
