Use a decibel meter to determine the noise volume. Set up noise perimeter zones where the volume exceeds 90 dBA. You should also designate all hard-hat areas as noise perimeter zones. Only staff working at the moment should be within this zone, and they should be wearing hearing protection. Continue Reading â†'
