Occupational exposure to high noise levels represents a problem almost in all service providing and goods producing industries, but according to available data, this problem is most pronounced at workers in transportation, mining and construction. Excessive exposure to high noise levels poses a serious danger to the miners` health which can lead to poor verbal communication and reduce their ability to recognize warning signals. Miners in surface and underground mines are exposed to high noise levels, resulting primarily from heavy and noisy machinery, while in underground mines the limited and closed space further increases the problem of exposure to high noise levels.This paper presents the results of measured noise level at main sources in mining as well as personal noise exposure of miners.
