These results consisted of 5 (42 %) noise risks with low category, 2 (16 %) with middle category, and another 5 (42 %) with high category. The highest noise intensity measurement result was found on Recycle Nitrogen Compressor (RNC) machine, which was 116,5 dBA. Conclusion : Based on this data, it can be concluded that there were 12 identified noise danger points and the highest noise intensity measurement result was found on Recycle Nitrogen Compressor (RNC) machine, which was 116,5 dBA. It is suggested for the related company to execute controls mostly in diminishing the noise sources.
