Abstract

With increased technological development and advanced new technologies, the number of risks and hazards to the workers` health is seriously increasing, due to excessive exposure to high noise levels. This imposes the necessity to pay more attention to the problem of noise impact on the worker, occupational diseases and harms it causes, protection from it and the introduction of measures to effectively control them.

With the rapid technological and industrial development, the number of hazards, risks and dangers to the workers`health is seriously increasing, among other things due to excessive exposure to high noise levels. This imposes the need to pay more attention to the problem of the impact of noise on the health of workers, occupational diseases and harms it causes, measures to protect against high noise levels and the introduction of measures to effectively control them.

In order to determine the personal noise exposure at certain work positions, in different industries, a measurement of personal noise exposure on 16 workers, distributed at 16 work positions, was performed. Noise measurement was performed on each worker with dosimeters within 6 hours in three working days.

The paper presents the results of personal noise exposure of workers in: furniture production plant, boxes production plant, PVC windows and doors production plant, textile industry and metal processing industry.
