"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The acceptable level depends upon how long the exposure is
OSHA 90 dBA for 8 hours. 105 dBA for 1 hour.

These are maximums

A conversation at home is approx 50 dBA, every 10 dB is a halving or doubling of the sound level
