Título Occupational noise management: What's happening in industry?
Información bibliográfica Aug. 2008, Vol.24, No.4, p.299-307. Illus. 11 ref.
Resumen This study examined the current state of occupational noise management across a representative sample of 113 South Australian businesses where hazardous noise was thought to be present. Noise in excess of 85 dB(A) was observed in 73% of visited workplaces, with exposures exceeding the national standard in 45% of the sampled sites. Ototoxic substances were observed in 19.5% of the sites. While medium and large businesses show that they are trending towards good occupational noise management practice, small businesses are falling behind and may need more in the way of advice and assistance.
