I believe OSHA has a standard regarding sound and hearing testing.

Re: [Histonet] Hard of hearing, anyone?

I agree entirely, but have never done a decibel reading.  Would be
interested in other replys, as my techs have recently been asking the
same question.  So much automation can hurt the ears:-)  Jen

Dear Histonetters, perplexed with what I am working with and wondering
anyone else is having this trouble.

With all the automated equipment in the labs, refrigerators,
auto this and auto that, has anyone ever or routine performs a decibel
reading in a histology lab?

The reason I ask is that we have four ultramicrotones; a microwave, a
building lab vent a hood, two counter top vents and two venting hoods
vent two processers, 3 refrigerators and a cryostat in a square footage
20' x 25'. When someone walks in, I cannot hear a thing they are saying
me, I have to be right next to them and it is such a relief when I do
out of the lab, so soothing to my ears, the quiet.
