  • Abstract Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate hearing loss among workers exposed to styrene, alone or with noise. Design: This cross-sectional study was conducted as part of NoiseChem, a European Commission 5th Framework Programme research project, by occupational health institutes in Finland, Sweden, and Poland. Study sample: Participants’ ages ranged from 18–72 years (n = 1620 workers). Participants exposed to styrene, alone or with noise, were from reinforced fiberglass… CONTINUE READING
