TopicAge Adjustment in Occupational Hearing Conservation Programs
When: May 13, 2021 at 2 pm EST 
About the Webinar: The tables used by OSHA to adjust occupational audiograms for the effects of age were developed over 50 years ago. In this presentation, we describe new data that suggest the OSHA tables over-adjust for age effects, resulting in reduced sensitivity to detection of noise-induced hearing loss.
Presenters: Greg Flamme, Ph.D. and Kristy Deiters, Au.D.

TopicImpulsive Noise: Understanding, Measuring, and Assessing
When: June 17, 2021 at 2 pm EST 
About the Webinar: Exposures to high-level impulsive noises such as collisions of objects, firearms, or explosions significantly increase the risk for developing noise-induced hearing loss. Understanding technological limitations and learning about specific techniques for capturing and measuring impulse noise can result in more accurate and repeatable data.
Presenter: Donald Finan, Ph.D.
