Abstract : This report provides detailed operating instructions to be used by base-level bioenvironmental engineers and technicians to determine appropriate personal hearing protection devices (HPD) and to calculate allowable exposure times for individuals wearing different HPDs in hazardous noise. In addition, this report presents a computer program that uses dosimeter time histories from Metrosonics noise dosimeters to streamline and increase the accuracy of HPD assessments.
