This position statement addresses the issues relevant to audiologists engaged in preventing occupational noise-induced hearing loss. Audiologists’ roles and responsibilities as overseers for hearing loss prevention programs and essential qualities of best practices for preventing noise-induced occupational hearing loss are outlined.
This document is not intended to address community or recreational noise, nor is it designed to be a how-to guide that specifies the details inherent to a hearing loss prevention program.
Whether serving on a clinical document development panel or participating as peer reviewers, volunteers have regular chances to deepen their engagement with the Academy and make important contributions benefiting the field of audiology. If you are interested in clinical document development, please volunteer to express interest and submit a CV to the Academy’s guidelines staff by email.
