NIOSH Testimony on the Occupational Noise Standard by R. A. Lemen, December 29, 1987.
NIOSH 1987 Dec:2 pages
This testimony concerns the OSHA request for comments and information concerning the Occupational Noise Standard, 29 SFR 1910.95. NIOSH has previously addressed the issue of information collection for this standard in its 1973 criteria document. The information that NIOSH believes is needed to ensure the success of an occupational noise standard is contained in Chapter-I of that document. NIOSH agreed with OSHA that the 1983 hearing conservation amendment to the occupational noise standard required the collection of information that was necessary to ensure the effectiveness of that standard. As the term information collection includes the conduct of tests, NIOSH feels that any reduction in the present information collection requirements of 1910.95 may result in a significant increase in the risk of hearing impairment among workers having a noise exposure covered by 29 CFR 1910.95.
