[Bolt, Beranek, and Newman.; United States. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Office of Policy Development and Research.;]. Rail Noise: A rail can be at grade, elevated or inside tunnels. Since tunnels are practically noise enclosures, noise problem mostly comes from trains running at grade or at elevated structure.

For railway noise, the descriptor of L eq is commonly used for noise impact assessment. Noise Criteria Guideline 1 Why is this guideline required.

This guideline has been developed to provide a consistent approach to identifying road noise criteria for Roads and Maritime Services projects. This guideline establishes criteria for the following project types: • New • Redeveloped • Minor works. COVID Resources.

These Guidelines for Control of Occupational Noise ( edition) are intended as basic practical guidance to the employer in developing noise control measures, thereby helping him comply with the requirements of the Factories and Machinery (Noise Exposure) Regulations —.

This book stands alone as the only available healthcare reference book for noise and vibration criteria. the book is useful and would recommend this book only as a guidance document in its present form to healthcare owners, architects, engineers and acoustical consultants.” (John A.

Paulauskis, Noise Control Engineering Journal, Vol. HSE provides information on noise at work. Over 1 million employees in Great Britain are exposed to levels of noise which put their hearing at risk.

The aim of a noise risk assessment is to help you decide what you need to do to ensure the health and safety of your employees who are exposed to noise. It is more than just taking measurements of noise - sometimes measurements may not even be necessary.

This Technical Advice Note aims to provide guidance on the assessment of significance of noise impacts for various common situations.
