Abstract

Measurement techniques and some results from the survey are presented. The concept of LTrade as the best estimator for noise exposure is introduced. It was also shown how the use of dosimeters may help to localize noise sources (plastic suits in the author's case). Finally, the close cooperation between workers, supervisors and surveyors was found to be fundamental for the success of the survey.
