Abstract: Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) negatively affects the quality of life of mine employees and costs mining companies large amounts in compensation claims. The prevention of NIHL requires early identification and recent evidence about the ability of otoacoustic emissions to identify inner ear damage before the conventional tests are able to, requires an investigation of the feasibility of using this method of testing on a large workforce in an annual medical surveillance settings
