Preventing Hazardous Noise and Hearing Loss during Project Design and Operation
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2016-101
Exposure to high noise levels in the workplace can cause hearing loss and affect worker productivity and compensation costs. This document describes case studies in which noise controls were implemented that reduced worker noise exposure. NIOSH recommends considering PtD concepts and incorporating engineering noise controls during the project design phase of processes and operations.
