British Standard 5228: Code of practice for noise and vibration control on construction and open sites

BS 5228 is divided in to two parts.

Part 1 that deals with noise and Part 2 that deals with vibration. Part 1 provides basic information on the prediction and measurement of noise from construction sites and operations such as mines and quarries. Methods of assessment are included as well as review of relevant legislation. A database of noise levels for a wide range of equipment is provided also. This data was obtained by Hepworth Acoustics working on a research contract for Defra.

Part 2 deals with vibration from construction and open sites. The legislative background is provided, together with information on vibration control. A review of relevant vibration criteria is provided together with guidance on measuring vibration.

Both parts of the 2009 Standard were slightly changed by the inclusion of Amendment No. 1 in 2014.
