Many business owners don’t expect that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) would ever come to their business to conduct an inspection. Some business owners believe that their business is too small or they don’t have enough employees—would OSHA really take the time to inspect them? The answer is yes—and those inspections can yield costly fines that could be detrimental to a business.

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.
