Conclusion

 

Construction work is inherently noisy. This publication explains why high noise levels on construction worksites are a serious issue that can be controlled. Many of the straight forward controls for common construction activities presented herein can be easily applied because contractors and workers do not have to have an extensive acoustical technical background to quiet equipment. Most often, construction worksite noise problems can be solved by contractors and workers together.
