It occurs due to contamination of undesired chemicals in the soil due to human activities. Application of insecticides and pesticides incorporates the nitrogen compounds from the soil making it unsuitable for plants to obtain nutrition from. Discharge of industrial waste, mining, as well as deforestation, are other human activities that pollute the soil because plants can 't grow in the right way and cannot hold the soil and this results in soil erosion which is the major form so soil pollution. The forth form of pollution is Noise pollution. It occurs unpleasant sound stirs our ears and results to psychological problems such as stress, hypertension, hearing impairment, etc.
This figure continues to rise with the increase in population and living standard. As a result, we can see everywhere there is garbage no matter at home, office, shop, side road, playgrounds and in the rivers (Armitage and Rooseboom, 1999). As a result, it will harm our children on playgrounds through broken glass or metal because of the irresponsible people who like to threw rubbish everywhere. Not only that, littering may hurts people by causing accidents on highways from debris being thrown out of car windows or wind (Patricia, 2007). This situation not only defile the environment but also will cause a stink surrounding circumstances and thus attracting the attention of pests such as rats and flies in which these animals also are carriers of dangerous diseases such as cholera.
Health matters are common in this field to employed workers since they are always manually handling equipment and are noisy. Common safety hazards on a construction site is the movement of vehicles and the falling from heights, and the most health hazard at a site are noise and the manual handling enterprise. It is also noted that unsafe behaviour highly results to the compelling actor that results to accident and occasionally leading to death at sides, according to HSE report which states that approximately 90% of accident
Mining operations: Mining is a process wherein minerals below the earth are extracted using large equipments. During the process dust and chemicals are released in the air causing massive air pollution. This is one of the reason which is responsible for the deteriorating health conditions of workers and nearby residents. 5. Indoor air pollution: Household cleaning products, painting supplies emit toxic chemicals in the air and cause air pollution.
Noise It is probably the most frequently forgotten of the environmental pollutants whose effects can be far-reaching. Noise harms us in more ways than we can think of and at times without us even knowing about it. We cannot have a noise free world but we sure can have a noise safe world. There are various sources of noise pollutions. In some places noise from construction projects predominate, while in others it is vehicular traffic or noise or noise from airports.
The reason for the high pollution amounts is because most of these companies are using outdated machinery which emits high amounts of pollutants. Industrial processes that include the above mentioned emit particular matter, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen oxide and other gases that harm the
Excessive sound is harmful to human health, and the well being of animal wildlife. Loud machinery, trains, or planes can cause noise-induced hearing loss and can contribute to cardiovascular problems, and coronary art disease. In animals, the effects may be much more pronounced. In humans, noise can affect our behavior, health, and how we interact. JM Field, in a study
Vehicles with modified mufflers are highly distracting in traffic and can cause accidents since they mask sound and agitate drivers. Loud sounds can affect hearing, vision reaction time and judgment of drivers and nearby people increasing dangers significantly for everyone involve. The noise produced by these vehicles not only lovers the quality of life and work of the majority of people but also can result in permanent hearing loss for vehicle operators and people nearby. This includes unborn children, since noise penetrates the womb. At high levels this noise can result even in tissue damage, body parts and organs resonate and tissues can fracture at some low frequencies leading to serious health
A) Introduction Noise pollution- “A form and level of environmental sound that is generally considered likely to annoy, distract or even harm other people.” Noise pollution has been an increasing worldwide issue, however, it is a tremendously destructive problem in our very own country. It causes stress related illnesses, sleep deprivation, hearing loss and distracts people. This issue can be proven damaging through the OR Tambo international. The OR Tambo International airport is situated on OR Tambo International Airport Rd, Kempton Park, Johannesburg. Airports worldwide generally deposit an enormous amount of noise pollution on daily basis due to the increasing demand for air travel.
We pollute the nature on many different areas, therefore there are many different kinds of pollution. We are all familiar with air pollution, soil pollution and water pollution. But many of us including myself are not aware or haven’t been aware of pollution types like noise pollution, light pollution, visual pollution, personal pollution and I believe we could find even more kinds. The most familiar type of air pollution is the smoke we can see crawling above factories and cities. We are also aware that the air traffic and traffic in general is a huge factor of the air
