Z107.58 Noise Emission Declarations for Machinery

For More Information:


Overview

Quieter machinery that supports and promotes workplace hearing protection is a competitive advantage for manufacturers. The second edition of CSA Z107.58 aims to help manufacturers efficiently provide standardized information on noise emissions from machinery and equipment. In addition, the standard helps workplace purchasing managers use noise emission declarations to purchase quieter machinery and plan noise control strategies, allowing them to comply cost-effectively with Canadian occupational and environmental noise regulations.

The benefits to workers, workplace managers, and communities in the vicinity of the workplace include reduced risk to workers of noise-induced hearing loss, a decrease in the number of disability claims for occupational hearing loss, enhanced capability for workers to communicate and to hear warning sounds, and reduced noise annoyance for communities.

Highlights of Z107.58

  • Applies to manufacturers and purchasers of machinery that is sold in, imported to, or exported from Canada, as well as regulators, acoustical professionals, and other interested parties
  • Guidance on the steps required to provide and verify noise emission declarations for machinery and equipment intended for the workplace
  • Guidance in the use of noise emission declarations to purchase quieter machinery and plan noise control
  • Requirements consistent with the European Union directives pertaining to machinery and the supporting international and European standards, prepared by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the European Committee for Standardization (CEN)
  • Additional requirements reflecting Canadian concerns with respect to noise measurements, employee exposure, and engineering noise control
