Title Low-cost methods of noise control at source which increase production and reduce the risk of hearing damage
Bibliographic information Oct. 1998, Vol.14, No.5, p.493-503. Illus.
Abstract Traditional methods of hearing conservation (hearing protection, job rotation, acoustic enclosures) are outlined and the advantages of noise control at source are described. Case studies show how correctly implemented noise control at source can reduce machine wear, increase tool life, increase production speeds and increase profits. Topics: case study; cost-benefit analysis; hearing conservation; hearing protection; machinery; noise control; noise measurement; safety by design; sound attenuation; vibrating tools; vibration damping.
