CONCLUSION: Results showed significant auditory effects caused by the combined exposure of forklift operators to carbon monoxide and noise, when compared to the group exposed only to noise. Thus, environmental, biological, and auditory monitoring of forklift operators is indispensable, regardless the level of noise to which they are exposed.
CONCLUSION: This study showed a need for the development of preventive actions towards hearing health, in order to promote improvements on work conditions and hearing preservation of bus drivers.
Relationship between audiometric findings and auditory and extra-auditory complaints of physical education teachers
CONCLUSIONS: 68.75% of the subjects related extra-auditory complaints. The results showed that, even though hearing loss only affected a small percentage of the studied population (9.37%), half of the teachers already presented audiometric notch in at least one ear.
