Industrial Hearing Conservation Partnership: Cyprus Audiology Center & Said Muhyi
Implemented with support from UNDP, the Economic Interdependence Project
Hearing conservation programs are mandated by European (Directive 2003/10/EC of the European Parliament) and Cyprus (ΚΔΠ 230 2002) law. The existing efforts to hearing conservation are sporadic and do not provide systematic record-keeping and data for long-term sustainability of these programs. “Industrial Hearing Conservation” provides testing, counceling to workers and support to companies in order to prevent occupational hearing loss where possible, and train for best practices. The following information describes the bases, justification, and guidelines for successful hearing conservation programs.
