The reason for taking a measurement with a noise dosimeter is to evaluate the average exposure of employees to noise during a normal shift. Ideally, when taking measurements the noise dosimeter should be attached to the employee at the start of a shift and collected at the end of the shift, in order to accurately assess the employee’s noise exposure over the whole shift. However, sampling for full shifts, and especially extended shifts, may not always be practical. If a shorter period is sampled then care must be taken to ensure the result is representative of the full shift exposure. This will require the sampler to have an understanding of the tasks performed during the shift and the cycles of those tasks.
