AbstractIn places associated with the entertainment industry in which music is performed or played, sounds with high sound pressure levels may occur. Such exposure is a threat to both people spending their free time at concerts, in discos or pubs, as well as employees in these places. The aim of the research conducted in 2017 was to assess on-the-job noise exposure in the case of bartenders at various premises of the entertainment industry. The measurements included 15 entertainment venues in Łódź, out of which 3 were selected: a music club, disco and pub. The exposure measurements were taken together for 4 work stations for bartenders using individual dosimetry in accordance with the PN-EN ISO 9612: 2011 standard. A total of 64 measurements were carried out, which showed that the equivalent sound levels A at the bartenders' workplaces vary considerably depending on the type of premises and the day of the week and the range of 67.6-108.7 dB. The highest sound levels occurred during the weekend (Fridays and Saturdays). The determined daily noise exposure levels exceeded the threshold of preventive action (80 dB) in 95% of the analyzed cases. Exceeding the maximum permissible noise level (NDN = 85 dB) was found in 66% of cases. It has been found that on-the-job noise levels in the case of bartenders significantly exceed the acceptable values of exposure levels and pose a risk of hearing damage. Med Pr 2018;69(6):633-641.
