OSHA regulates employee exposure to noise, and a part of these regulations is a table called "Permissible Noise Exposures." Employers should implement administrative and engineering controls to help reduce noise exposure for their employees. Sometimes these type of controls are not enough; if that's the case, one will need to wear proper PPE to help reduce their exposure to noise.
Topics include the duration and exposure limits permissible by OSHA, what employers and employees need to do to help prevent exposure, and common sound levels in our everyday lives.
