This study investigated sound intensity levels in college construction woodshop. Using numerous factors, measurements were taken from a variety of sources, including woodworking related machines along with positioning around the machine and around the shop. The results indicate that the noise levels are often in a damaging range and can increase the risk of NIHL to individuals exposed to this noise. Hearing protection devices (HPD) should be used while operating in the construction woodshop.
