OSHA Introduces New Interpretation on Noise Control Policy

In the October 19 Federal Register,  OSHA published a notice of proposed interpretation relating to its noise control policies under the agency’s General Industry and Construction Occupational Noise Exposure standards.  The agency is seeking comments before March 21, 2011 on its proposal to require employers to use administrative or engineering controls rather than personnel protective equipment (PPE) to reduce noise levels to acceptable levels when such controls are feasible.  A summary of the OSHA proposal may be viewed by clicking here
