That’s the key difference between a perceived safety culture and an effective one.

OSHA regulations on occupational noise exposure consider two factors: the level of noise in decibels (dBA) and the length of time exposed to a level of noise. First, manufacturers have to determine their work environment’s noise levels using a Sound Level Meter (SLM) or Audio Dosimeter. A SLM provides real-time indication of current noise levels at a certain location while the dosimeter is attached to a person to record and calculate the average noise levels from wherever that person is throughout the day.

When the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) declares a motor carrier an imminent hazard, the carrier must cease all commercial motor vehicle operations, including interstate and intrastate transportation, from all dispatching locations or terminals. FMCSA also revokes the motor carrier’s federal operating authority and suspends its USDOT number.
