Abstract The Order of 30 August 1990 (published in the Journal officiel of 27 September 1990) is issued in application of article R.235-11 of the French Labour Code. The provisions of the Order apply to the construction or the layout of premises designed to house machines and equipment likely to expose workers to daily noise levels of more than 85dB(A). An appendix describes a method for measuring the decrease in noise level as distance from source doubles.
