Recently, AIHA released the sixth edition of the Noise Manual. The new edition of the Noise Manual includes new chapters on impulse noise, ototoxicants, fit testing, and community exposure. In addition, all of the chapters have undergone significant updates to reflect the advancements in knowledge made since the fifth edition was published in 2000. This presentation will cover some of the information in the four new chapters and provide a refresher on some of the fundamental concepts critical to understanding noise exposure and handling noise data.
