Title Personal noise dosimetry in refinery and chemical plants.
Bibliographic information Apr. 1974, Vol.16, No.4, p.255-257.
Abstract Surveys made at several refineries and chemical plants show that dosimeter studies are a valuable part of a hearing conservation programme. Personal noise exposure determinations using the integrating dosimeter greatly reduce the time and effort which would be required by time and motion studies.
