Guidance for evaluating human health impacts in environmental assessment : noise.: H129-54/3-2017E-PDF
“This document provides generic guidance on predicting health risks related to levels and/or types of sound predicted in federal environmental assessments (EAs) of proposed major resource and infrastructure projects (such as mines, dams, pipelines and other projects). It presents the principles, current practices and basic information Health Canada looks for when it reviews the environmental impact statement (EIS) or other reports submitted by project proponents as part of the EA process. It was prepared for the benefit of proponents and their consultants and to support an efficient and transparent project review process. The foundational information described here should be supplemented appropriately with additional information relevant to specific projects. The guidance was also prepared for responsible authorities (RAs) and stakeholders to the EA process to communicate our normal areas of engagement and our priorities within these areas to help ensure that sufficient evidence is available to support sound decisions"--Purpose, p. 2.
