AbstractWorkers at a soft drink production plant were interviewed about their hearing health, exposure to noise and use of occupational hearing protection devices. While 24% of the 209 workers reported always using hearing protection, 39% stated they never used any form of device. Worker responses were analysed and their stated reasons for the non use of hearing protection were summarised. Responses were compared to Australian and overseas industry findings. The need to conduct such survey research on an industry-by industry basis is emphasised and the implications for hearing conservation programs outlined.
