Revised resource to help employers measure workplace noise

Published on: February 18, 2020

Calculating noise exposure can be difficult if you don’t have the expertise. This resource will help you conduct a noise survey at your workplace.

Front cover of publication "Measuring Occupational Noise"Employers must know the noise levels in their workplace if workers could be exposed to hazardous noise. Measuring Occupational Noise is for employers who want to conduct a noise survey on their own, as well as for employers who have decided they need to hire a professional noise surveyor but want to ensure the person they’re hiring is qualified to do the work. It is intended to be a resource for anyone who conducts occupational noise surveys and calculates noise exposure levels.

The manual reflects the latest CSA standards, and replaces two older resources: Basic Noise Calculations and Occupational Noise Surveys.
