Noise Pollution and Its Control in Mining

Noise known as a major health hazard is spot specific in case of underground mining where the operators are exposed to continuous background noise while high level short duration noise peaks are common in case of surface mining. The human ear is most sensitive in 2 to 5 KHz range and less sensitive in high and low frequencies.

Noise identification, modeling, and control in mining industry

Prolonged exposure of miners to the high levels of noise in opencast and underground mines can cause noise induced hearing loss and non-auditory health effects. To minimize noise risk, it is imperative to identify machinery noise and their impacts on miners at the work place and adopt cost effective and appropriate noise control measures at the source, path, and at the receiver.
