Abstract: At the 2003 Mine Health and Safety Summit, the milestones for elimination of Noise-induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) in the mining industry were agreed on. The first milestone, December 2008, has passed and the next one in 2013 is looming. The study sought to answer the questions: Did we reach the 2008 milestone? What should the industry do now about hearing conservation that will ensure that there is no deterioration in hearing greater than 10% amongst noise-exposed miners? How can we ensure that the industry achieves the 2013 milestone? What else should the industry aim for to achieve “zero harm” to workers' hearing?
