SINCE AUGUST 27, 1971, when it became effective, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) regulation concerning noise levels has been the source of considerable controversy and confusion.... The law concerning the noise standard is itself far from settled. The multitude of decisions from the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission...and administrative law judges have left many questions unanswered and have allowed substantial uncertainty to remain regarding the interpretation and application of the standard
