    Little is known about what factors, other than chronic exposure to noise, predispose individuals to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).

    The current retrospective study was designed to identify risk factors for NIHL in a population of 229 men [age 55-68 (mean=63 years)] employed at a metal assembly plant.

    All men had been chronically occupationally noise-exposed for approximately 30 years (>=89 dBA) with an average Ea noise emission level) of 104.5.
