Assessment of the cardiovascular system and blood pressure should be done as well as the auditory system for noise exposed shift workers
This study aimed to assess the relationship between shift working and occupational exposure to noise with blood pressure (BP). The study was carried out in a rubber manufacturing company in 2010. The highest rate of hypertension (HTN) and mean systolic and diastolic BP were observed among shift workers who were exposed to noise higher than permissible limit; there was a significant relationship between simultaneous exposures to noise more than the permitted limit and shift work with HTN. The results of our study showed that shift working and simultaneous exposure to noise have an additive effect...
Reducing Noise Hazards for Call and Dispatch Center Operators
Workers at call and dispatch cen­ters may suffer health risks asso­ciated with high noise levels from their headsets. T he NIOSH evaluations did not reveal hearing loss problems among call center operators and dispatch­ers that can be directly attributed to noise exposures from their headsets or the surrounding environment. Howev­er, most workers interviewed reported various symptoms often associated with prolonged exposure to high noise levels. Symptoms included ringing in their ears, headaches, irritability, increased tension, and fatigue. There are international standards on...
The implementation and enforcement of noise controls are essential to the success of any occupational hearing conservation program.
The National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) sent a letter to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) advocating the regulatory body to revisit the interpretation and application of noise controls in industrial workplaces. In January 2011, OSHA withdrew its proposal to interpret guidelines emphasizing the use of engineering and administrative controls to mitigate occupational noise. “The implementation and enforcement of noise controls are essential to the success of any occupational hearing conservation program, and often provide additional production...
En centre d’appel de multiples facteurs engendrent de la fatigue, des troubles de la voix, du sommeil et du caractère ainsi que du stress.
Une enquête épidémiologique a été conduite par l'INRS dans les centres d'appels téléphoniques (CT). Il s'agissait de mettre en évidence les caractéristiques organisationnelles qui ont des conséquences sur la santé. Quatorze facteurs organisationnels (FO) ont été identifiés comme étant les plus souvent associés aux contraintes. Ainsi, les conditions de travail sont souvent difficiles par la conjonction de multiples facteurs, entre autres, une ambiance sonore perturbatrice, l'utilisation...
Occupational noise-induced hearing loss in Australia
Overcoming barriers to effective noise control and hearing loss prevention The present report describes the outcomes of an investigation of the key factors (‘barriers’ and ‘enablers’) that influence the effective control of occupational noise and prevention of ONIHL. The overall aim of the project was to provide stakeholders with a greater understanding of why a preventable condition such as ONIHL still occurs among Australian workers despite the fact that each jurisdiction in Australia has regulations for exposure to occupational noise. The findings will also assist stakeholders...
