This SAE Standard sets forth measurement procedures and instrumentation to be used for determining a "representative" sound level during a representative time period at selected measurement locations on a construction site boundary. The document is not intended for use in determining occupational hearing damage risk. Determination of a representative time period is left to the judgment of the user.
SAE J1075 is being reaffirmed due to its continued value as a standardized test method for measuring the non-specific noise levels around the perimeter of a work site. The methods and technology used within this test standard are unchanged and are not anticipated to change in the near future.
