8 NOISE AND VIBRATION Local authorities have powers under the Control of Pollution Act to control noise from construction sites. These powers do not refer to fixed Limits for primarily transient vibration (eg from piling works or train pass-by) above which .

The purpose of the Noise Control Ordinance Cap (NCO) is to provide statutory controls to restrict and reduce the nuisance caused by environmental noise. Details of the ordinance and related regulations can be found in the "Bilingual Laws Information System" website of the Department of Justice at noise, or vibration which annoys or disturbs human beings or which causes or tends to cause an adverse physiological or psychological effect on human beings and which conflicts with the criteria of sound levels set forth in this chapter.

Much of our work focuses on analyzing and mitigating noise impacts of federally funded construction projects. We also provide support for evaluating operational and construction related noise and vibration concerns. Topic areas we assist with are: noise barriers, quiet pavement, bridge noise, rumble strips, hydroacoustics, and bioacoustics. Steps to control noise in a workplace. The model WHS Regulations require duty holders to work through a hierarchy of control to choose the measure that eliminates or most effectively minimises the risk in the circumstances. The most effective control measure is to eliminate the source of noise .

Objective. This management plan defines the measures to control and limit noise emissions and vibration levels, at residential properties and other sensitive receptors in the vicinity of the Project. The Contractor will discuss and agree with the Local Authority whether to seek their formal consent in accordance with Section 61 of Control of Pollution File Size: 1MB.

Control of Pollution Actalthough law related to both Statutory and Common Law can be relevant in the event that excessive noise nuisance is caused by an activity. Powers are given to local authorities under the Control of Pollution Act (COPA) for the control of noise from construction sites.

Physical Hazards: Noise and Vibration April, 1 Introduction The terms noise and vibration are often linked as in, for example, ‘noise and vibration engineering.’ This is because exposure to vibration is usually associated with exposure to noise, and the physics of vibration and noise are similar.

While the specific health effects. borne vibration candamage fragile buildings or interfere with equipment that is highly sensitive to ground-borne vibration (e.g., electron microscopes).

Existing Noise and Vibration Levels Noise Levels. The LAMC, Section (Minimum Ambient Noise Level) has set forth the presumed ambient noise levels for various land uses (Table ).

The. noise and vibration impacts to the immediate area as a result of steel sheet pile driving and related sheet pile installation activities at the Site. Summary of the Plan This Plan incorporates practical and effective measures to offer the greatest potential to mitigate noise and vibration from the planned pile driving activities at the Site.

Introduction. Design codes place limits on the ground vibrations and noise created by construction operations. These limits are intended to prevent disturbance to humans and damage (both cosmetic and structural) to nearby buildings.

Irreparable damage caused to listed buildings is of particular concern. (Ref. ) is of particular relevance. a) National Legislation i) The Control of Pollution Act, (COPA) Section 60 of the Control of Pollution Act, (Ref.

) provides powers to local authority officers to serve an abatement notice in respect of noise nuisance from construction works. operational noise and vibration. The criteria have been determined based on the relevant state legislation, policies and guidelines.

In some cases, no specific Queensland State policy or guidelines exist (e.g. for construction noise and vibration impacts) and guidance from other states, particularly NSW, has been used to assign relevant impact.

regulation of noise and vibration, however it is not intended to be a replacement for specialist advice. At the date of publication of this report the Agency is consulting upon guidance notes on noise and vibration which describe the application of the general information given.

The material included in this book is limited to that which is clearly applicable to nonaerospace industrial noise control problems.

The later chapters, in particular, include more advanced and source-specific noise control technology. Emphasis has been placed on fan noise reduction, noise transmission control techniques, and jet noise suppression. The assessment of noise and vibration will be conducted under the relevant legislation and guidance including: Study Area This proposed development covers an extensive study area that extends from Parteen Basin on the River.

The purpose of the NEBB Procedural Standards for Measurement of Sound and Vibration is to establish a uniform and systematic set of criteria for the performance of the sound and vibration testing of environmental and building operations. Today’s buildings provide highly controlled indoor environments.

These conditions could not exist. Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations (S.I. of ) The purpose of these Regulations is to prescribe the main requirements for the protection of the safety, health and welfare of persons working on construction sites and to give further effect to Council Directive 92/57/EEC on the minimum safety and health requirements at temporary or mobile construction.

NOISE & VIBRATION – GENERAL Noise and vibration must be kept to a minimum by methods of work that conform with the ‘Code of Practice for Noise and Vibration Control on Construction and Open Sites’ (See BS Parts 2 and 4:and EC and UK Noise Legislation, as applicable).

At all times the best practicable means as defined in the Act must be employed to reduce noise. Noise levels associated with the construction and operation of the alternatives under con-sideration as part of the MESA study are subject to the noise standards defined by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and provisions of the New York City Noise Control Code.
