The method of personnel exposure evaluation described was developed to define clearly for management and operating personnel which jobs may have excessive occupational noise exposures. It requires a noise survey of A-weighted sound levels in the work areas. These readings, designated dBA, are plotted as contours on a plan of each work area and the intermediate zones are colored coded. From the length of time a workman spends in each zone, the extent of his noise exposure may be determined.
