This document specifies basic framework measurement methods for sound immission from sound sources placed close to the ear. These measurements are carried out with a manikin, equipped with ear simulators including microphones. The measured values are subsequently converted into corresponding free-field or diffuse-field levels. The results are given as free-field related or diffuse-field related equivalent continuous A-weighted sound pressure levels. The technique is denoted the manikin technique...view more

This document outlines strategies to be used in dealing with noise problems in existing and planned
workplaces by describing basic concepts in noise control (noise reduction, noise emission, noise
immission and noise exposure). It is applicable to all types of workplaces and all types of sources of
sound which are met in workplaces, including human activities.
It includes those important strategies to adopt when buying a new machine or equipment.

ISO 9612:2009 specifies an engineering method for measuring workers' exposure to noise in a working environment and calculating the noise exposure level. ISO 9612:2009 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 ef...view more
