Description / Abstract:

This Standard provides procedures for the measurement of occupational noise exposure. The user of this Standard should be proficient, or under the direction of one who is proficient in noise measurement.

This Standard provides procedures for measuring the occupational noise exposure from all types of noise, e.g., continuous, fluctuating, intermittent and/or impulse/impact. Measurements may be reported as sound level with corresponding duration, time-weighted average sound level and/or noise dose.

This Standard provides for the measurement of the noise exposure of individuals and can be extended to representative groups performing similar activities. It can also be used to measure the noise exposure from a given job or activity.

This Standard does not provide procedures for the measurement of occupational noise exposure attributable to the use of earphones or telephone receivers.
