World Health Organisation Recommendations

World Health Organisation views on Aircraft noise

 Intro from PAGNE perspective …. 

Recommendation Strength

 

For average noise exposure, the GDG strongly recommends reducing noise levels produced by aircraft below 45 dB Lden, as aircraft noise above this level is associated with adverse health effects. Strong

 

For night noise exposure, the GDG strongly recommends reducing noise levels produced by aircraft during night time below 40 dB Lnight, as nighttime aircraft noise above this level is associated with adverse effects on sleep. Strong

 

To reduce health effects, the GDG strongly recommends that policy-makers implement suitable measures to reduce noise exposure from aircraft in the population exposed to levels above the guideline values for average and night noise exposure. For specific interventions the GDG recommends implementing suitable changes in infrastructure. Strong
