Abstract Some issues in conflict regarding the proposed OSHA standard for occupational exposure to noise are examined. These include material impairment, the extent of possible hearing loss, non-auditory effects, and the nature of social and economic costs and benefits of regulation at 85 dBA and 90 dBA exposure limits. A preliminary analysis of the methodology and difficulties in arriving at cost-benefit estimates is included. Regulatory alternatives such as new plant standards, industry-specific standards, variances and abatement agreements, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment are explored.
Highlights Notes Examines issues in conflict regarding the proposed OSHA standard for occupational exposure to noise.
