At the occasion of World Hearing Day 2019, in partnership with NIOSH, WHO and several partners, INRS is contributing to a Wiki Edit month in order to develop more information about workplace noise and hearing loss prevention on Wikipedia. Each year, around 25% of French workers are exposed to hazardous noise levels at work.
INRS is endeavouring to expand and improve the occupational safety and health content in the French version of Wikipedia. Wikipedia has become an important source of information for a large part of the population. Many people are turning to Wikipedia for information or are directed to Wikipedia by their search engine. Our challenge at INRS is to put our research into practice and to reach the largest audience while delivering accurate information on occupational safety and health.
