Post:

Howdy all,

I'm looking for an official source on decibel levels and the dangers of
prolonged exposure to various dB. Could anyone point me in the right
direction?

Cheers,

29CFR1910.95 (Code of Fed. Regs.) will give you the OSHA exposure
limits. Tom Rossings' book on the Science of Sound will give you
physiological effects as well as reference to other noise regulations.
I have the 2nd ed. which is somewhat dated. He has a new edition (or
new book) on sound co-authored with Chris Chivaverina that may be more
current. However, I have not seen this one and am not sure if it
discusses noise, hearing conservation, etc.
