CIS 83-375 Order of the National Board of Occupational Safety and Health concerning the control of the risk of noise-induced hearing damage at work
Arbetarskyddsstyrelsens beslut angående bekämpning av risk för hörselskada förorsakad av buller i arbete [en sueco]
This Order (effective 1 Aug. 1982) applies to all workplaces and activities covered by the Order of the Finnish Council of Ministers on noise control 730/74 (CIS 75-1295). It lays down that noise exceeding a continuous equivalent A-weighted sound pressure level of 85dB is to be considered harmful to hearing. According to the last mentioned Order, engineering measures have to be taken to ensure that noise does not cause hearing damage. If this is not feasible in certain cases, or if the work to be performed, involving exposure to noise, is of short duration or exceptional, the workers should wear hearing protection of an approved type.
