Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:
- Recognize the purpose, advantages, and disadvantages of considering age when evaluating audiometric changes in occupational and other clinical audiology practices
- Identify challenges and opportunities in preventing music-induced disorders
- Recognize need, and potential, to extend OSHA’s age adjustment tables beyond age 60 to reflect the current workforce
Description: Clinical audiologists have unique opportunities to prevent nonoccupational and occupational hearing loss. Such advocacy calls for awareness, and application, of new and unique evidence-based advances. This presentation will be structured to review strategies for preventing music-induced hearing disorders, particularly among musicians and music-industry personnel. In addition, researchers will discuss recent trends in hearing sensitivity as a function of age, background on age adjustments that are included in the OSHA noise regulation, and ongoing efforts to update these age adjustment tables.
