Assessing and Controlling the Noise in Construction. Romanian and EU Legislation
MetadataShow full item record
Exposure to loud noises at work can cause irreversible hearing damage, workplace accidents and be a contributing factor to other health problems. Noise-induced hearing loss is the most common reported occupational disease in the European Union; noise at work can also exacerbate stress and increase the risk of accidents. This article provides an introduction to the management of noise in construction both before and during work on site. Also, it shows how the European directive structure and the complementary standards ensure that risks to workers from noise are addressed to reduce the high personal, social and economic cost of ill health and accidents arising from noise exposure.
