Abstract
This noise survey assessed noise exposure sustained by persons in various military trades at three Canadian Forces Bases (CFB) in Ontario (Petawawa, Borden and Trenton). It is part of a larger project that will involve the assessment of audiograms obtained from personnel at the bases to assess the effects of cumulative noise exposure on hearing acuity. Participants were asked to wear personal noise dosimeters over one full work shift. In total 258 dosimeter measurements of military personnel belonging to 36 different Military Occupations were collected.
