Acoustics - Determination of occupational noise exposure - Engineering method (ISO 9612:2009)

Status: Valid

Scope
This International Standard specifies an engineering method for measuring workers’ exposure to noise in a working environment and calculating the noise exposure level. This International Standard deals with A-weighted levels but is applicable also to C-weighted levels. Three different strategies for measurement are specified. The method is useful where a determination of noise exposure to engineering grade is required, e.g. for detailed noise exposure studies or epidemiological studies of hearing damage or other adverse effects.

The measuring process requires observation and analysis of the noise exposure conditions so that the quality of the measurements can be controlled. This International Standard provides methods for estimating the uncertainty of the results.

Results of the measurements performed in accordance with this International Standard can provide useful information when defining priorities for noise control measures.
