Consultation regarding two separate regulatory proposals on how ACC responds to injury-related hearing loss claims: prescribing the proportion of the costs that ACC is liable to pay for hearing loss entitlements and updating procedures for noise-induced hearing loss assessment procedures.
Submission of the New Zealand Audiological Society on Regulations for Noise Induced Hearing Loss under the Accident Compensation Act 2001 pursuant to sections 323 and 324.
A survey of noise in saw-milling and wood processing industries, commissioned by ACC and carried out by the University of Otago, with the aim of assessing noise within the industry and identifying simple solutions to reducing the noise.
The aim of this study was to assess the risk of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) in shearing and investigate practicable control methods.
