Description: Good noise performance is essential to the health and well-being of personnel. When workers are exposed to excessive noise, regulations require that a plan is devised to bring their exposure to acceptable levels.
The Code on noise levels on board ships has been developed to provide international
standards for protection against noise under the provisions of regulation II-1/3-12 of the
SOLAS Convention. The Code, adopted by resolution MSC.337(91), recognizes the need
to establish mandatory noise level limits for machinery spaces, control rooms, workshops,
accommodation and other spaces on board ships, and enters into force on 1 July 2014.
The Code includes:
• a format for noise survey reports;
• guidance on the inclusion of noise issues in safety management systems;
• suggested methods of attenuating noise; and
• a simplified procedure for determining noise exposure.
Additional info: Following were included into the book:
- Res.MSC.337(91) - Adoption of the Code on Noise Levels on Board Ships;
- Code on Noise Levels on Board Ships (2014);
- Guidance for shipowners on conducting noise surveys.
