||The noise level environment for bus drivers in a Brazilian city was examined. Noise levels were measured in three types of buses. In 56 out of the 60 buses examined, the normalized noise exposure levels were below 82dB(A). The quality of the workplace was thus considered as acceptable overall. The four buses with noise levels above 82dB(A) require noise reduction measures. These buses are older and have the engine located in the front. Year of manufacture and location of the engine are two factors that highly contribute to the level of noise reaching the driver.
