Professional activities in the public road traffic, for example, vegetation maintenance, street and sewer cleaning or waste collection, may require hearing protection. As the perceptibility of warning signals (for example, hooters, police sirens, reverse alarms) must not be diminished by the ear protection, a method shall be developed for an individual audio test for those who work in the fields mentioned above to ensure, that the selected hearing protection device is not only generally but also individually appropriate.
