NEW WHO ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE GUIDELINES 2018 FOR THE EUROPEAN REGION
The WHO/Europe Environmental Noise Guidelines provides an important replacement to the 1999 Guidelines published 19 years ago.
The main purpose of these guidelines is to provide recommendations for protecting human health from exposure to environmental noise originating from various sources: transportation (road traffic, railway and aircraft) noise, wind turbine noise and leisure noise. Leisure noise in this context refers to all noise sources that people are exposed to due to leisure activities, such as attending nightclubs, pubs, fitness classes, live sporting events, concerts or live music venues and listening to loud music through personal listening devices.
