Here is an excerpt from the guide, to give you some idea of the easy-to-read nature and the depth of information:

Action 'v' Limit - what's the difference?

There is one simple, defining difference between the Action Values and the Limit value and that is to do with hearing protection. If you work out that someone is exposed to 112dBA Lep'd for 8 hours, then they are certainly above the upper action value and they would also appear to be above the Limit value.

If, however, you provide that employee with hearing protection and you calculate the effectiveness of that hearing protection such that you know the level is reduced to 78dBA, then you can safely say that they no longer exceed the Limit. They would still be considered to exceed the Upper Action Value. This is because the rule about hearing protection ONLY applies to the Limit Value!"

If you have any involvement in the control of noise in your workplace, then this is a must-have document. Even if you are well-versed in the subject, I'm sure you'll find some new angle which will be of use.
