English term or phrase: time-weighted eight-hour average (TWA)
Are there any noise exposures in any of the location operations above a time-weighted eight-hour average (TWA) of 85 decibels and/or impact noise levels that equal or exceed 115 decibels?

Términos usados en España, por favor. Gracias.

Explanation:
Time-weighted = Tiempo ponderado. Se refiere a la ponderación de intensidad de ruido (decibeles) y duración de los mismos. Esta medición es tomada en varias ocasiones durante 8 horas. Por eso se traduciría: Time-weighted eight- hour average = Promedio ponderado (de decibeles)en un período de ocho horas. Espero sea de ayuda.

TWA - Time weight Average


Explanation:
time-weighted eight-hour average (TWA)

Are there any noise exposures in any of the location operations above a time-weighted eight-hour average (TWA) of 85 decibels and/or impact noise levels that equal or exceed 115 decibels?

This has to do with hearing protection.

¿Existen exposiciones a ruidos en cualquier lugar de operación que exceda los 85 decíbalos en un promedio de 8 horas al día y/o niveles de ruidos de impacto que igualen o excedan 115 decíbalos?

TWA (Time Weight Average)- I have not been able to get a suitable translation for this term. I usually explain to the employees what in means. What this means is that if employees are exposed to noise levels of above 85 decibals the company is require to provide hearing protection and medical follow ups, such as regular hearing tests for employees and noise level tests in the company to figure out what would be the best hearing protection for the employees.
If you do find a suitable translation for this term, please let me know. I have been looking for a translation for the past 2 years.
