  • If you remember from the last slide we were interested in finding noise regulations. Clicking on Part 7 of the regulations in the previous webpage takes us to the noise exposure regulations. I previously illustrated how we can view the policies, guidelines and standards associated with regulations by searching in the tabs in the regulations webpage. The other method to find these supporting materials is to click on the tabs provided in the specific reguation. If we are interested in viewing the policies related to noise expoosure we can click on the policies tab in the upper right corner of the webpage as seen by the red arrow. If there are applicable policies associated with noise exposure you will be directed to a new webpage. If there are no applicable policies a small window will pop up notifiny you there are no relevant policies. Similarly we can view the guidelines for noise exposure regulations. The guidelines are very helpful as they are meant to provide you guidence on how to interpret the regulations. I highly suggest reading the guidelines when you are investigating regulations.The last thing I want to point is often you will see various standards referenced in the regulations. For instance as we can see on this page, there is a CSA standard referenced regarding the requirements for noise measurement. Previously it was difficult to optain these standards as they were only available by purchase or could be viewed in libraries. The standards vary in price but you could imagine how expensive it could be to obtain all the standards required for your workplace. Government agencies and workers’ compensation boards realized the problem with this system and have worked together to try make the standards more accesssable and available online free of charge. To view the CSA standards, simply click on the “View CSA standard referenced in ohs regulation” link in the quick links navigation bar highlighted in red. This will take you to a new webpage where you will be asked to register before you are allowed access to the standards. I highly recommend that everyone register to gain access to the standards. If you feel uncomfortable providing your work information, register as a student at Uvic. If you remain in occupational health you will find this very helpful. The only downside to this system is that you are not able to save the standards and have to log in each time you wish to view them.
