Abstract:

Median hearing levels were determined for 225 young airmen who were entering training for occupations involving exposure to potentially hazardous noise. The values were extracted from hearing conservation data forms received from Sheppard AFB, Texas. The medians were compatible with those reported for three other groups of young adult men. These median hearing levels were determined to establish an appropriate reference for assessing the hearing of individuals exposed to potentially hazardous noise. Author
