Título Occupational noise exposure in small scale hand tools manufacturing (forging) industry (SSI) in Northern India
Información bibliográfica July 2009, Vol.47, No.4, p.423-430. Illus. 20 ref.
Resumen This study was carried out in five small-scale hand tool forging units in Northern India. Noise levels in the workshops were measured, and were found to be above 90dB(A) in several areas. Additionally, a cross-sectional sample of workers responded to a questionnaire, results of which revealed that 68% of the workers were not wearing ear protective equipment. Among these workers, 50% were not provided with protective equipment by their employers. About 95% of the workers were suffering speech interference, although high noise annoyance was reported by only 20%. Other findings are discussed.
