PurposeTo study hearing loss in commercial airline cabin crew (CC).MethodsTotally 155 male and 781 female CC (n = 936) in a Swedish airline company underwent repeated audiometric tests during 1974–2005. The last test was used to study hearing loss. The mean test values at 3, 4, 6 kHz were used for the ear with worse hearing loss. Data were compared with a Swedish population (n = 603) who were not occupationally exposed to noise. Equivalent noise levels (Leq) were measured in different aircraft… 
Hearing status among aircraft maintenance personnel in a Swedish Commercial Airline Company
The aim was to study hearing loss in a population of aircraft technicians and mechanics and indentify predictors. Equivalent noise levels during a working day were measured and were 70-91 dB (A).
Audiometric profile of civilian pilots according to noise exposure
TLDR
Hearing loss in civilian pilots may be associated with noise exposure during the period of service and hours of flight, and the number of pilots with suspected hearing loss increased as the noise exposure level increased.
Hearing status among Norwegian train drivers and train conductors
TLDR
Norwegian train drivers and conductors have normal hearing threshold levels comparable with those in non-exposed groups, and no difference in hearing level or prevalence of audiometric notches was found after adjusting for age and gender.
Occupational exposure to noise and hearing thresholds among civilian aircraft maintenance workers
Abstract High noise exposure is anticipated to be present in the aircraft maintenance operations in civil aviation sector. The objective of the present study is the assessment of noise exposure and
Assessment of noise in the airplane cabin environment
TLDR
FAA should consider applying the more health-protective NIOSH/ACGIH occupational noise recommendations to the aircraft cabin environment and identify appropriate response actions.
Prediction of hearing loss among the noise-exposed workers in a steel factory using artificial intelligence approach
TLDR
Results of accurate prediction can be used by occupational health experts to modify and improve noise exposure conditions and confirmed that neural networks could provide more accurate predictions than multiple regressions.
Noise exposure during ambulance flights and repatriation operations.
TLDR
Noise levels inside Learjet 35A, the aircraft type which is most often used for repatriation operations, were collected from locations where flight crews typically spend their time and met the specifications for class 2.
Assessment of Noise Exposure During Commuting in the Madrid Subway
TLDR
A new methodology is developed to estimate a representative commuting noise exposure of individuals during commuting to and from their jobs, at home, and during recreational activities, highlighting that, for Madrid subway passengers, noise exposure level depends strongly on the type of train, the presence of squealing noise, and the public address audio system.
The possible influence of noise frequency components on the health of exposed industrial workers--a review.
TLDR
The study provides a strong evidence for the claims that noise with a major frequency characteristic of around 4 kHz has auditory effects and being deficient in data fails to show any influence of noise frequency components on non-auditory effects.

Hearing health risk in a population of aircraft carrier flight deck personnel.
TLDR
The study found a mean FD time weighted average of 109 dBA over workdays averaging 11.5 hours, where only 2 (4%) of 52 administrative personnel had any appreciable hearing loss, whereas FD and engineers demonstrated 17% and 27% hearing impairment, respectively.

The material and illustrations resulting from this study will help health and safety monitors during indoctrination and counseling of aircrews concerning the need to protect their hearing against noise exposures during normal and routine flight operations.

TLDR
The risk of noise-induced hearing loss was greater for drivers in job for more than 6 years, after controlling for age-related hearing loss and the prevalence of arterial hypertension was 32.7%.
Evaluation of Noise Effects in Auditory Function in Spanish Military Pilots
Abstract : Military pilots are particularly exposed to a wide variety of environmental stresses, one of which is the noise produced by the aircraft used for flying duties. In addition to aircraft

TLDR
The occupational health nurse has a major role in promoting increased use of hearing protection devices through continued contact with workers, administrators, and safety personnel.
Reference data for evaluation of occupationally noise-induced hearing loss.
Relevant reference data are required in order to determine the effect from occupational noise exposure on hearing. Pure-tone averages (PTA) of hearing threshold levels simplify the evaluation for
Hearing threshold levels for an otologically unscreened, non-occupationally noise-exposed population in Sweden: Umbrales auditivos en una población no estudiada, sin exposición a ruido ocupacional en Suecia
TLDR
The results are compared to other studies of otologically unscreened populations, and a new mathematical model of hearing threshold levels as a function of age is presented.
Recreational firearm use and hearing loss.
TLDR
Results indicate that use of recreational firearms is associated with marked high-frequency hearing loss in men and there is a need for further education of users of Recreational firearms regarding the risk of hearing impairment associated with firearm use and the availability and importance of appropriate hearing protection.
Comparison of the hearing threshold measured by manual pure-tone and by self-recording (Békésy) audiometry.
TLDR
It has been established, that the standard deviations of hearing thresholds obtained under similar conditions in a pure-tone investigation are about twice as large as those obtained in a Békésy investigation.
