Danger

Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified the following permissible noise level exposures:

DURATION PER DAY (HOURS)

8

6

4 3 2 1

SOUND LEVEL (dB)

90

93

95 97 100 103

 

 

 

 

According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in operation.

Danger

L‘exposition a des niveaux eleves de bruit peut provoquer une perte permanente de l’audition, Chaque organisme humain reagit differemment quant a la perte de l’audition, mais quasiment tout le monde subit une diminution de I’acuite auditive lors d’une exposition suffisamment longue au bruit intense. Les autorites competentes en reglementation de bruit ont defini les expositions tolerees aux niveaux de bruits:

Selon les autorites, toute exposition dans les limites citees ci-dessus,peuvent provoquer certaines pertes d’audition. Des bouchons ou protections dans l’appareil auditif ou sur l’oreille doivent etre portes lors de l’utilisation de ce systeme d’amplification afin de prevenir le risque de perte permanente de l’audition, Dans le cas d’expositions superieures aux limites precitees il est recommande, afin de se premunir contre les expositions aux pressions acoustiquese I evees potentielIement dangeure u ses, aux personnes exposees aux equipements capables de delivrer de telles puissances, tels ce systeme d’amplification en fonctionnement, de proteger l’appareil auditif.
