Abstract

Noise exposure from worksite can cause a lasting effect of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). The effect may vary according to industries with manufacturing and construction industries among heavily affected. However, the total number of compensation cases is still low compared to the affected population of construction industry workers. This might due to inefficient and slow compensation process. This paper aim to evaluate the current compensation process for NIHL, with in-depth discussion about the procedure adopted to find alternative ways to expedite and improve the compensation process involving noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) cases. Although the compensation methodologies is not relatively new, the current practice today still leaves gaps in processing compensation cases efficiently and promptly. In this study, compensation process for NIHL cases were reviewed. Data were collected through articles, regulation and law acts. It was complemented with research visits to social security and insurance providers. The result demonstrates that while the current process adopted is workable, it still inefficient to cater the population of affected.
