||European Directive 2003/10/EC (see CIS 06-253) specifies noise level thresholds above which employers are required to take action. This article examines the concept of action levels and their value in the workplace. A model for introducing action levels into Australian and New Zealand OHS legislation at 5 decibels below current noise exposure limits is proposed, and suggestions for the actions to be undertaken by management are given.
