BACKGROUND While there is a wide body of literature addressing noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) and hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) independently, relatively few studies have considered the combined effects of noise and vibration. These studies have suggested an increased risk of NIHL in workers with vibration white finger (VWF), though the relationship remains poorly understood. AIMS To determine whether hearing impairment is worse in noise-exposed workers with VWF than in workers with… CONTINUE READING
