Abstract

The CSA Standard Z107.56 `Procedures for the Measurements of Occupational Noise Exposure' comprises a main body and four Appendices. Appendix B deals with the measurement of noise exposure of groups of workers using statistical sampling methods. Some rather complicated mathematical treatments of the data are required. These calculations can be performed very easily using the computer program described in this paper. The program is menu driven and user friendly. It has been offered to CSA for distribution
