||Evaluation of occupational exposure to infrasonic noise in Poland
||Apr.-June 1999, Vol.12, No.2, p.159-176. Illus. 28 ref.
||The results of infrasonic noise measurements performed in the work environment in Poland are discussed. The study concerned the noise emitted by 124 different types of industrial machinery, appliances and means of transport. The measurements were made in typical working conditions with reference to Polish and international standards. The sound pressure levels exceeded Polish admissible values in 4.0% of cases covered by normal workers' health protection, 62.1% of cases in observational dispatcher cabins and the like and in 74.2% of cases on administration premises, in design offices, etc. The hearing threshold of infrasound was exceeded in 66.9% of all industrial machinery and means of transport under study.
