Our web-based tool is introduced by NOISH for the noise exposure estimate

The web-based tool developed by our lab allows epidemiologists, industrial hygienists, occupational health practitioners to access the noise exposure estimates based on the results from the noise Job Exposure Matrix(JEM).

The JEM is based on the 989,179 valid noise measurement from 1960s to 2015, representing 274 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) and 430 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes on a national scale.
