Z107.56-13 - Measurement of noise exposure
Workers in many occupational sectors – including manufacturing, mining, construction, transportation, and emergency services – often perform their jobs while exposed to high levels of occupational noise. Long-term exposure to noise can result in both hearing loss and stress-related illness. As part of the series of standard for acoustics and noise control, this third edition of Z107.56 focuses on procedures for measuring occupational noise exposure to determine if the exposure poses a threat to worker safety.
