Noise

 

Welcome to the section of the website SAFER dedicated to NOISE hazards.

The content-related materials presented on the following pages of the section discuss the most important issues related to the noise in the working environment, in particular: hazards related to noise and the effects of human exposure to noise, legal requirements relating to noise, sources of noise, principles of exposure assessment noise together with the presentation of basic quantities characterizing noise in the working environment and methods of occupational risk assessment as well as the most important principles of technical and organizational prevention.

 

Due to the complexity of the presented topics, as well as possible serious health or material consequences of incorrectly identified noise hazards and improper selection and use of preventive measures to the needs arising from such hazards in a specific workplace, reading the materials presented on the site can not be considered as an alternative to specialist assessment of exposure characteristics (required by labor law) or for specialist training on hazards related to noise and the principles of safe work in noise hazards.
