Hearing Conservation Bibliography
Dating back to 1997, articles related to hearing conservation and hearing loss prevention.
Each issue of Spectrum (NHCA's quarterly newsletter) contains a listing of recent references in hearing conservation. References available here begin in 1997 and are updated quarterly.
Includes posters, slides and Practical Guides offering a rich supply of employee education and motivation.
NHCA is proud to present a line of teaching tools designed to help educate and motivate employees. These items have a multitude of uses and are a most valuable addition to educational materials currently available for hearing conservationists.
Includes an extensive listing of noise and hearing resources available on the web as published in Spectrum.
Starting in 1997 Lee Hager began reviewing selected Internet sites for our print publication Spectrum. In 2000 Rob Pluta took over the review process. Inclusion of links on this page in no way suggests review or approval by NHCA of the materials included on the linked pages.

|Learn More About Hearing Conservation|
Hearing conservation is the prevention of hearing loss.
Although traditional hearing conservation efforts have focused solely on noise in the workplace, the goal of the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) is to prevent ALL hearing loss - whether it results from workplace noise or other environmental factors - in all sectors of society. NHCA strives to be the premier resource for individuals involved in hearing loss prevention.
