I work for a mining company in Western Australia. I have a colleague
who works in Occupational Health, and is trying to produce some graphs
and statistics of noise-related hearing loss for our employees. He
has an algorithm for binaural and monaural percentage hearing loss,
but he said it's not good for noise-related figures. I'm not in the
field, so forgive me if I'm a bit vague here, but from what I
understand these algorithms are weighted towards detecting
low-frequency hearing loss, whereas noise-related hearing loss is more
concerned with high frequencies.
We don't have internet access at work yet, so I told him I'd have a
look at home. I've been looking on the web for about an hour and a
half now, but haven't managed to find anything specific enough.
If somebody could provide an algorithm/program for this, we'd be most
appreciative. Please email replies.
