Topic: Practical Noise Control
Speaker: Tim O’Neill, O’Neill Engineered Systems (OES)
Noise is defined as unwanted sound. Unwanted sound can be hazardous to your hearing or can be simply disturbing, interfering or annoying. Sound does not have to be loud to be unwanted. OSHA’s primary approach to over-exposure is to engineer out the problem. This discussion will address the basics of noise, and specifications, alternative products and design for noise control.
Tim started O’Neill Engineered Systems in 1998 after working for 6 years at a Chicago area noise control specialty firm. OES is involved in noise control to protect the hearing of workers, in such places as engine testing facilities, and acoustic test labs. The company also deals with community noise issues such as sound and vibration problems in multifamily buildings. They have sales offices in Milwaukee, Chicago and Minneapolis.
