CDC Noise Level Meter

Want to know whether you should be using hearing protection while mowing the lawn? How about while using a belt sander?
The Center for Disease Control does a lot more than tract and record contagious diseases and here’s a great example.

Click on the image below to go to the CDC “Noise and Hearing Loss Prevention” page for play with an interactive sound level meter.

Just click on the activity on the left to see what the Decibels are and see if you should be wearing hearing protection or if you are okay without.

Don’t want to have to go to the CDC website every time? Then download the app for you computer and you can run it whenever you want, whether you’re connected or not.
