Abstract
Here we discuss the importance of monitoring noise in contemporary animal facilities. Noise surveys and monitoring should be an integral part of an institution's Occupational Health and Safety Program. If noise levels equal or exceed 85 dB, then a Hearing Conservation Program must be initiated in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards. The tenets of a comprehensive Hearing Conservation Program are outlined.
