  • Ready for the future with CNOSSOS-EU!

    The Environmental Noise Directive 2002/49/EC which appeared in 2002 raised the question among those who are “experts in noise” how noise mapping and noise action planning should be implemented throughout Europe. They all agreed that, in view of the completely different calculation methods in the European countries, the calculation results reached and exposure figures collected would ...

  • Noise Maps

    In the U.S., OSHA has set regulations on worker noise exposure. The specific regulations are 29 CFR 1910.95 for industry and 29 CFR 1926.52 for construction. The usual measurement method is to use a portable noise dosimeter attached to a worker that measures noise exposure as the person moves about the work area. However, this does nothing to identify the source and location of the noise. It also ...

  • Procedures to analyse noise maps in connection with noise action plans

    After finishing of the noise mapping of the European Noise Directive1” the noise action planning follows. This part of the END-projects concerns with measures for noise reduction in general and in detail and information and collaboration of the public. In this process a huge amount of measures and alternatives accumulates. Therefore automatic working tools for evaluation of the measures and ...

  • An Industrial Noise Map is Basic to Hearing Conservation

    An Industrial Noise Map Is Basic to Hearing Conservation In the U.S., OSHA has set regulations on worker noise exposure. The usual measurement method is to use a portable noise dosimeter attached to a worker that measures noise exposure as the person moves about the work area. However, this does nothing to identify the source and location of the noise. When conducing a noise survey, a noise ...

  • END noise mapping – the sustainable solution of the german federal railway authority, review to an outstanding

    The Federal Railway Authority of Germany was tendering 2006 a sustainable noise mapping system to fulfil the needs of the END (European Noise Directive). The aim of the project was to develop a system which contains all required model data and results for the first level of the EU noise mapping. In addition the system should be an integrated software solution to explore the model data. It should ...

  • Noise mapping of industrial sources

    Noise is often one of the environmental variables where it seems more difficult to guarantee full compliance with legal limits in complex industrial situations and/or in other multi-source environments. This paper describes the application of noise mapping techniques to industrial sources, such as factories, power plants, wind farms, showing the potential of its use, both at the design stage as ...

  • Evaluation and analysis of environmental noise pollution in the city of Erzurum, Turkey

    Noise pollution and its influence on the environment and life quality of human beings is a hot topic in scientific research. A study has been carried out to determine the level of noise and its sources in the city of Erzurum located in the east of Turkey. Noise measurements were taken in the morning, at noon and in the evening to determine noise pollution all over the city, particularly motorway ...

  • Noise Survey for OSHA Compliance

    OSHA requires a noise dosimetry survey to determine if workers are exposed to noise that could damage their hearing. To satisfy OSHA’s requirement for Noise Surveys (29CFR1910.94 for General Industry, 29CFR1926.52 for Construction) involves attaching a noise dosimeter to a worker for a work shift when there is a possibility that person and persons performing similar tasks may be exposed to ...

  • Noise Planning Software Used to Map Major EU Roadways

    Most countries have a national noise policy to protect citizens from undesirable environmental noise levels from road, rail and air traffic and industrial sources. The European Noise Directive for the Assessment and Management of Environmental Noise outlines a coordinated method to achieve noise reduction in large cities as a first step, followed by smaller cities as a second step. The ...

  • In-situ noise level mapping for vehicle floor carpet

    Noise level mapping of test vehicles' floor carpets was undertaken for three frequency bands, that is, low-(2,000 Hz) to compare noise control treatment performance and effectiveness. On-road tests including idling conditions and constant speed tests of 40, 60 and 80 kph were undertaken. Noise level contour maps indicate that the luxury class test vehicle ...

  • I Need A Noise Dosimetry Survey for OSHA Compliance

    OSHA requires a noise dosimetry survey to determine if workers are exposed to noise that could damage their hearing. This is more than just using a sound level meter to take some noise readings. A noise dosimeter is actually worn by the worker for a shift. This enables a true evaluation of a worker’s noise exposure as he/she moves about the workplace. The noise dosimeter is worn for a full ...
