Abstract

NAL and the HEARingCRC are increasingly seeking ways i) to translate our hearing loss prevention research findings and ii) promote noise awareness and hearing health via electronic and online methods. The aim is to translate our research work intotools that are broadlyaccessible to both researchers and the general public regardless of location. This presentation will discuss some recently developed online initiativeswith a focus on the NOISEdatabase project. The NOISEdatabase allows researchers toaccess and contribute to its collection of 895 noise level measurements obtained at a wide range of different leisure activities in Australia and across the globe. Also included will be an introduction to our 'Know Your Noise' website aimed at young adults. The site allowsanyone to learn more about the consequence of their noise exposurethrough the Noise Risk Calculatorand other elements of the site.
