Environmental Health News – September 2015

Over-exposure  –  September 2015

Article highlighting the problems of applying fixed decibel thresholds against specific sources of noise they were not designed to be used for. The article uses a simple analogy of not assessing noise purely on decibel level as this would be like choosing your food diet purely by weight regardless of food type selected and expecting the same short and long term outcome. These points are generally misunderstood by engineers and those who place significant weight on decibel levels.
