Noise exposure and evaluation at tire changing facilities
The purpose of this study was to (1) determine if workers in the tire changing industry are overexposed to hazardous noise that could result in occupational hearing loss; and (2) determine the maximum number of tire changes that could be performed without exceeding occupational exposure limits. Personal noise dosimetry data were compared to published occupational noise exposure limits to assess compliance. The noise dosimetry results were then extrapolated against the number of tire changes to determine if there was a relationship between the number of tire changes and employee noise exposures. ...
