Abstract:

The studies performed concerning the cumulative effects of noise lead to the following recommended maximum tolerable levels of noise relative to intensity and duration with daily exposure up to 100 decibels--six hours, up to 110 decibles--one hour, 115 decibels--not more than 30 minutes. These criteria bear reference to individuals exposed to noise without the use of individual protective devices. When the latter are used, the allowable levels of noise may be correspondingly increased by ten decibels. Author
