The Global Standard for safe listening venues and events was published by the World Health Organization on March 2 of this year, ahead of World Hearing Day. The key intention of the Standard is a reduction of overall audience exposure to high sound levels at live events worldwide, however, its implementation is up to individual nation-states, smaller jurisdictions, or even individual music venues. The authors were involved in discussions informing the Standard from an early stage, supporting its development by creating an evidence base around the measurement and management of sound levels in music venues. This paper provides an overview of the authors’ research informing this contribution and highlights necessary further research.
