- 1 Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Kosice, Department of Safety and Quality of Production, Slovak Republic
The paper deals with the impact of noise (low frequency noise on threshold point) on human health and safety in the workplace. The first part of the article describes the main impacts of noise on human health – specific and systemic. Part of the paper is also the process of risk assessment according to the valid directive of the European Parliament and Council Directive 2003/10 / EC.
The paper deals with frequency weightings of low frequency noise. Authors describe frequency weightings A and Z and its difference in low frequency noise measurement and also the main goal of its usage. Part of article is experimental measurement of this noise in work environment.
