Machinery - industrial noise control Industrial Noise Control

In industrial settings, mechanical and vibration noise can adversely affect the activities occurring within the facility as well as affect the health of employees. Noise-related hearing loss has been listed as one of the most prevalent occupational health concerns. Thousands of workers every year suffer from preventable hearing loss due to high workplace noise levels.

OSHA sets legal limits on noise exposure in the workplace. These limits are based on a worker’s time weighted average over an 8 hour day. With noise, OSHA’s permissible exposure limit (PEL) is 90 dBA for all workers for an 8 hour day. The OSHA standard uses a 5 dBA exchange rate. This means that when the noise level is increased by 5 dBA, the amount of time a person can be exposed to a certain noise level to receive the same dose is cut in half.*

OSHA recommends the use of soundproofing materials to reduce noise levels and to create a more healthful workplace. We offer the best lines of acoustic soundproofing materials and architectural acoustic materials in the industry.
