Abstract : The maintenance personnel of thermal power stations are exposed to the constant effect of noise, whose total level reaches 100-111 dB, for the whole work day. The noise levels can be lowered both at operating and planned thermal power stations due to the elimination or sound proofing of its sources. For the protection of the maintenance personnel of the power station from the adverse effect of noise in turbine and boiler shops, it is necessary to install noise insulating booths in the operator's positions and to cover the walls of the rooms of unit control panels with sound insulating panels. It is recommended that antihum devices be used during work in sections with intense noise (near air holes of steam pipelines).
