Main areas of activity of the Noise Laboratory NA1:


  • recognition of the state of the hazard from audible noise, infrasound and ultrasound in the working environment,
  • developing technical and organisational solutions to limit noise at source and during its diffusion,
  • analysis of hearing protectors and developing new research methods for hearing protection and properties of protectors,
  • standardisation activities,
  • educational activities.

The research laboratories of the Noise Laboratory are included in the quality assurance system, accredited by PCBC (Polish Centre for Testing and Certification),which includes the complete set of the Institute’s research laboratories.

The scope of accreditation covers 3 procedures on the measurement of the acoustic strength of noise sources, 2 procedures on measurements of noise-insulating cabins and 3 procedures related to the measurement of noise at work stations. It also includes procedures related to the certification tests of hearing protectors.
