PURPOSE: to check the efficacy in the choice of small, medium or large auricular protector under auditive conservation program. METHODS: 30 individuals, between 18 to 45-year old, with normal hearing, were part of the study previously evaluated: 15 women and 15 men, all working in a furniture industry. The individuals were submitted to the conventional audiological evaluation, audiometry in free field without auricular insertion protector, with universal size protector and with size adequate to each individual. For statistical analysis we used Parametric T test for analyzing the differences. RESULTS: the Parametric T test showed significance, during the comparison of the auricular protectors in the frequency of 4KHz. CONCLUSION: these results demonstrate efficacy in choice of small, medium or large auditive protector, under auditive conservation program.
