||Noise levels emitted by microcomputers from different manufacturers have been measured to be 50-60dB(A). Printers may have noise levels as high as 73dB(A). Recent research has shown that noise levels of 50-60dB(A) could lead to performance impairment, in particular in complex intellectual activities where memorisation and concentration play an important role. It is therefore suggested to take into consideration the noise environment of PC workstations.
