Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established a permissible exposure limit (PEL) for the noise of 90 decibels on the A scale (dBA) for an eight-hour work shift with an action level of 85 dBA for an eight-hour shift or an equivalent exposure of 50%. OSHA also uses a 5 dB doubling rate, meaning for every 5 dB increase in exposure, the allowable time for the exposure is cut in half. The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) both recommend an eight-hour occupational exposure limit (OEL) of 85 dBA for an eight-hour shift and using a 3 dB doubling rate. Reflect on each approach, and summarize your thoughts on the merits of each approach and which method you would use if you were trying to reduce the risks associated with noise at a facility where you were hired as the safety manager.
