  1. ncbi request reprint Impulse noise and risk criteria
    J Starck
    Department of Physics, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Helsinki, Finland
    Noise Health 5:63-73. 2003
    ..There is an urgent task to develop risk assessment method and risk criteria for impulsive noise to meet the requirements of the upcoming European Union noise directive...
  2. doi request reprint Hearing loss among classical-orchestra musicians
    Esko Toppila
    Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Finland
    Noise Health 13:45-50. 2011
    ..Music deteriorates hearing, but by less than what ISO 1999-1990 predicted. The low number of individual susceptibility factors explained the difference, but only reduced hearing loss and not the prevalence of tinnitus...
  3. ncbi request reprint The use of hearing protectors among forest, shipyard and paper mill workers in Finland--a longitudinal study
    E Toppila
    Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Topeliuksenkatu 41 Helsinki, Finland
    Noise Health 7:3-9. 2005
    ..A similar trend was noted in forest workers, with the full-time use at 97% by the 1990s. Due to the increased usage rate in all measured industries, the mean effective noise level at the ear has decreased to below 85 dB...
  4. ncbi request reprint Evaluation of the increased accident risk from workplace noise
    Esko Toppila
    Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Finland
    Int J Occup Saf Ergon 15:155-62. 2009
    ..For both methods, efficiency must be evaluated through proper risk assessment. Because practical guidelines are not available, this paper presents principles for accident risk evaluation techniques...

    J Starck
    Director of the Department of Physics, Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Topeliuksenkatu 41 a A, 00250 Helsinki, Finland
    Noise Health 7:47-53. 2005
    ..In the worst case this will cause 1.6 dB increase in daily exposure level to noise...
  6. ncbi request reprint Effects of peak levels and number of impulses to hearing among forge hammering workers
    G Suvorov
    Institute of Occupational Health, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Moscow
    Appl Occup Environ Hyg 16:816-22. 2001
    ..The hearing loss of workers exposed to high impulsive noise correlated significantly with the peak levels and the number of impulses in combination...
