Z107.58-15 - Noise emission declarations for machinery
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.
