Excessive noise is a global occupational health hazard with considerable social and physiological impacts, including noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Numerous researches and studies conducted, worldwide, indicate that exposure to high noise levels at mining workers poses a serious risks factor for hearing loss. Exposure to high noise levels can cause difficult verbal communication and reducing ability to recognize warning signals, as well as causing workwrs` stress and fatigue.
This paper provides an overview of results of several researches and studies related to hearing loss due to noise exposure on mining workers, in order to indicate the seriousness of this problem and necessity to take appropriate mitigation measures.
