||Personal noise exposure was monitored in a small dry dock by fitting a microphone to each worker's helmet. Six different occupations were investigated: supervisors, welder/shipwrights, painters, electricians, woodworkers and unskilled workers. Measurements were repeated over 13 days and randomly distributed over four months. Daily noise exposure levels ranged from 15 to 30dBA for all tasks except those of the woodworkers. Statistical analysis of the data is described. Results may have an important role in defining sampling strategies for collecting noise exposure data for compliance and epidemiological purposes.
