Abstract

This article deals with research into the occupational health implications of exposure to high levels of workplace noise. As most industries rely on auditory signals to warn of danger there is concern that such signals should be heard reliably by the workforce exposed to high levels of noise. The auditory signal design window technique has been developed in order to define the auditory characterisation of a warning signal which can be heard in noise or noise protected conditions. The technique is described and examples of its use are presented.
