Studies have shown the hazards of noise-induced hearing loss for industrial technology teachers and students. A teachers guide and materials were developed and workshops conducted for audiologists and industrial technology teachers 5 years ago in Iowa. Teachers’ attitudes and awareness of the hazards of noise were determined by a survey. The results show a need to increase the effectiveness of training and knowledge of industrial technology teachers regarding hearing conservation.
