Brief description There are no guidelines on how to prevent and monitor the effects of solvents on hearing. There is an urgent need of an audiological test battery capable of detecting early signs of occupational solvent-induced hearing loss (OSIHL). It is the aim of this research to a) investigate the influence of solvent and noise exposure on the function of the auditory system, and b) determine the tests with the highest discriminatory power to detect early signs of OSIHL that can be used in the workplace.
