Abstract

A hearing loss caused by prolonged exposure to noise is well known. It must also be recognized that the noise dosage should be used as a means to predict such hearing loss. However, methods for measuring the noise dosage are numerous. A brief review of a few methods and their evaluation are given. In a large plant and especially in the presence of variable noise levels and exposures the audio-dosimetry-sound level meter method would appear a valuable choice for measuring the noise dosage and identify the noise source (s) responsible for over-exposure.
