Abstract The United States Air Force (USAF) School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM), Epidemiology Consult Service (PHR), Hearing Conservation Program (HCP) prepares an annual status report on the USAF HCP. This report covers both CY2009 and CY2010 and provides a corporate view of the current status of the USAF HCP with data reported from the Defense Occupational and Environmental Health Readiness System Data Repository (DOEHRS-DR). This report covers an overview of a few standard reports currently available in the DOEHRS-DR database, software implementation status data, hearing conservation program metrics, and recommendations. The DOEHRS-DR reports cited in this document reflect the data available in the data repository. Local hearing conservation program records may reflect a lower permanent threshold shift (PTS) rate due to the inability to resolve certain types of PTS cases within the DR and to import/export difficulties. The differences between the locally reported PTS rate and the PTS rate with the DR are currently being investigated by USAFSAM/PHR. We strongly recommend installation and major command (MAJCOM) HCP managers review their respective programs using the metrics given in this report, as they give an initial guideline to estimate program effectiveness.
