Overview/Description
Engineering controls are used as a means to control or manage noise from an equipment. Examples of engineering controls that can be used to reduce noise levels are soundproofing the equipment, using dampers or springs, maintaining the equipment, and buying low noise equipment. Administrative controls can be used to attenuate noise with the help of less exposure to the noisy equipment. Examples of administrative controls that can be used to reduce noise exposures are limiting the time of work near a noisy device or increasing the distance between the noisy device and the person. In this impact series installment, Frank Rooney discussed about examples of engineering and administrative controls to reduce noise levels.
