IMPORTANT: try to speak in a low voice !

 Please try to speak in a low voice with your desk(s)-colleagues so long you are in the control room ! IMHO: this should became an official prescription in the shift regulations, that only a shift leader would speak loudly among 20-25 shifters. It is rather hard to stand for several hours many various discussions around neighboring desks.
