Abstract:

An acoustical assessment was performed on the 303IS transmission monitoring at Osan AB in May 2012. It was determined that personnel performing transmission monitoring duties were exposed to hazardous noise. Exposures at certain workstations were over the adjusted 12-hour exposure limit. Recommendations include enrolling personnel in the hearing conservation program, installing electronic filtering, use of noise cancellation headphones, and further investigation to determine root causes of hazardous noise levels.
