||A method for the measurement of noise exposure from communication headsets is described. The method is based on the use of an acousto-mechanical model of the human head equipped with a microphone at the level of the eardrum. Results of sound level exposure measurements taken in various industries are presented and analysed by type of headset, nature of environment and location. The method was found to compare favourably with other methods, both in accuracy and efficiency.
