9/19/2012 - Training materialsLoud noise can permanently damage your hearing. It especially affects the sounds that help you understand speech. To hear what this sounds like, try these computer-generated samples.
2/4/2012 - PC softwareSoftware to simplify the record-keeping and analysis associated with time-motion studies and worker noise exposures, making it easier to identify and solve noise problems.
11/1/2010 - Brochures/flyers/pamphletsThis publication addresses what you can do when you are exposed to hazardous noise.
12/1/2009 - Information CircularsThis document describes principles of noise control to operators, safety personnel, and mechanics in the mining industry so that they can evaluate the extent of a noise problem, determine the best approach, and apply the most appropriate solution.
12/1/2006 - Conference papersThis paper presents a method using a ray-tracing technique to determine absorption coefficients for underground mines. Absorption coefficients are determined and presented for octave bands from 63 Hz to 8 kHz.
