A good analyzing method is important to analyze the factors involved and related in noise pollution. Few techniques were experimented and the solutions were implemented in the work floor by Robin Nicolai et al [6]. Noisy atmospheres develop job dissatisfaction due to its effects on health aspects. Fatigue, blood pressure variation, head ache and peptic ulcer are the common diseases found with people who are working in a noisy environment for long time [7]. Some of the environments like market, metal forming industrial areas, ordinance training areas are always noise prone areas. An effective control measures is required for both living and floating…show more content…
The physiological damage caused by noise is more severe than the psychological cause of annoyance and irritability. If a person is allowed to work in a noisy atmosphere, the noise will act as a stress which affects the body organisms. Medical history has proved that noise is one of the reasons for diseases like peptic ulcer and hyper tension. During World War II noise was used as a mass killing weapon and also used to change the mentality of the human beings by irritation over a period. Noise as a stress acts on the human organism and may worsen or perpetuate diseases after it has taken hold. Noise has an adverse influence on mood, rest and relaxation. Noise can disturb sleep and rest. It interferes with performance where response to speech communication or other auditory signals is expected. According to research work conducted noise may also affect the digestive system. The noisy industrial environment is the prime cause for noise induced hearing loss among people. If a person is allowed to work in an environment where the noise is of more intensity and duration, then hearing loss will be the result. In 1976 Government of India had included Noise inducted Hearing Loss as notifiable disease as per section 89 of Factories Act
