Abstract This information sheet explains how to quantify the influence of workplaces on workers' noise exposure. It specifies the regulatory requirements and presents practical solutions for the acoustic improvement of noisy industrial workplaces. These elements should enable prescriptors and architects to quantify their requirements with respect to the acoustic improvement of the premises and acoustic engineers to design appropriate solutions.
