Title Factors influencing the implementation of noise control programs in industry
Bibliographic information Aug. 1996, Vol.12, No.4, p.471-475. 2 ref.
Abstract Follow-up surveys were conducted in 14 workplaces where earlier surveys had included recommendations for noise control treatments. 57% of the companies surveyed had implemented at least some of the recommended measures. Factors influencing implementation included: a well-informed and motivated management; availability of a noise policy plan and a motivated person to drive the noise control programme; ease and cost of control implementation; and provision of engineering details in the original survey report. While noise control can be expensive, there are many inexpensive treatments which can be done in-house.
