Abstract

The Know Your Noise website was developed to provide accurate and personalized information about hearing health to increase users’ awareness of the risk for noise-induced hearing loss and increase their likelihood to undertake behavior change to reduce their exposure. This study aimed to examine the effectiveness of the site in meeting these goals. User engagement via google analytics showed good engagement with the site itself across a range of demographics. Results from an online evaluation survey indicated improvement in hearing health engagement following participation, particularly for those shown to be most at risk.
