Infographics: Noise Level Of Some Common Construction Equipment

 

Why is Hearing Protection important for Workers in Road Construction Industry?

 

More than half a million road construction workers are exposed to potentially hazardous high noise levels, which is why noise reduction and noise cancellation solutions need to be implement in the construction industry.

There are several factors that influence the noise level during road construction:

  1. The condition of the equipment being used.
  2. The type of equipment used.
  3. The environment/work area - Is the area partially enclosed or fully enclosed?
  4. Potential for multiple types of equipment running at the same time.
