Original title Panorama des normes d'acoustique industrielle élaborées dans le cadre de la nouvelle approche [in French]
Bibliographic information 2nd Quarter 1996, No.163, Note No.2018-163-96, p.133-148. Illus. 10 ref.
Abstract This article is the first in a series devoted to over 30 EU and EFTA standards on industrial noise. An introduction to the general safety and health philosophy in Europe and to the relevant legislation is followed by a number of summaries for reference. The general industrial noise standards covered here make up a coherent, complete and powerful set of tools, constituting a major element in the prevention of noise-related health problems. Subsequent articles will deal with individual standards in greater detail.
