Abstract Proceedings of a one-day workshop on the measurement of workers' exposure to noise in occupational settings held in Paris, France on 17 June 1999. The requirement for such measurements is defined by the regulations concerning the protection of workers against noise and is based on the standard NF S 31-084 published in 1987, currently under revision. Main topics covered: methodology for measuring noise (personal dosimetry, noise measurement at the workplace); methodology used by control organizations; evaluation of exposure to noise in very small companies; strategy of measurements based on an "8-hour" noise dose; measurement precision; computer-assisted sound exposure measurement; proposals for the revision of the standard on the measurement of exposure to noise in occupational settings.
