The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Hearing Loss Prevention Cross Sector Council was formed from stakeholder partners representing academia, trade/professional organizations, industry, unions, and government agencies.  The Council was charged, in part, with developing the National Occupational Research Agenda for Hearing Loss Prevention, to identify research, information, and actions most urgently needed to prevent occupational hearing loss. The Agenda provides a vehicle for stakeholders to describe the most relevant issues, gaps, and safety and health needs. It is also intended to guide or promote high priority research efforts on a national level, conducted by various entities; including government, higher education, and the private sector. The Agenda describes five high level objectives: Provide input for policies and guidelines that will inform best practices for hearing loss prevention efforts;  Development of effective, evidence-based education designed to improve hearing conservation program outcomes for exposed workers and management; Noise control development, commercialization and widespread implementation on jobsites in key industries; ‚ Development of audiological tests for hearing loss prevention; and improving occupational hearing.
