Title Recent developments on industrial noise control in Singapore
Bibliographic information 1999, No.2, p.1-3.
Abstract Noise is one of the main health hazards in industry. In Singapore, efforts have been made at the national level to control noise and prevent noise-induced deafness. This paper presents the Factories (Noise) Regulations introduced in 1997 and other noise promotional activities, such as the tax incentive scheme for noise hazard control, the noise control award scheme, guidelines on industrial noise control and hearing conservation, training courses, conferences, seminars and workshops aimed at raising awareness of noise hazards, and noise level monitoring in factories.
