||Code of practice for noise control on construction and demolition sites

||This code of practice is a revision of CP 49:1989 (see CIS 94-1738): it incorporates amendment No.1, January 1999. It includes the considerable experience that had been accumulated on the control of noise in the construction industry since the publication of the previous issue, as well as the latest information on the methodology of noise monitoring at construction and demolition sites and the measures that can be adopted to reduce noise from various construction and demolition equipment. The importance of ensuring that excessive noise is avoided at all times to protect nearby residents as well as site personnel is highlighted. Responsibility for minimizing construction noise rests with the developers, planners, engineers, architects and all site personnel through proper scheduling of construction activities so that noisy operations are carried out during less noise-sensitive periods of the day, use of appropriate quieter types of construction equipment, and the use of noise control measures on noisy equipment. Site personnel should also be informed about the hazards of excessive noise and be protected against potential noise-induced hearing loss by the use of appropriate personal hearing protection.
