In everyday life, we are exposed to many sources of noise including from passing traffic, builders using tools or even background music in a shop. Many people are also exposed to noise in their workplace from sources such as production machinery, air extraction systems or through headsets in a call centre. Noise is one of the most common occupational health and safety risks.
The “daily personal noise exposure” is the maximum amount of noise an employee can be exposed to in their working day and is a calculation based on the level of the noise and the length of time spent exposed to it. The “exposure limit value” in the UK is a daily or weekly exposure of 87dB(A) and a peak sound pressure of 140 dB(C).
