When it comes to a work environment, how loud is too loud? According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), it’s likely too loud in a factory or other workplace if people need to shout to be heard when talking to others standing just a few feet away. In addition, noise may be an issue if workers hear humming in their ears or have temporary hearing loss after they leave work.
Factories can be among the loudest places to work. Fortunately, there are ways to soundproof a factory to reduce industrial noise levels and allow your employees to be more productive and healthy.
