||Low-frequency noise (including infrasound noise) is a harmful and annoying factor in working and living environments. There are currently no criteria concerning the annoyance of low-frequency and infrasound noise in the workplace. Effects are particularly noticeable during concentrated mental work. This article presents the results of an analysis of annoyance produced by low-frequency noise at workstations where high levels of attention or concentration are required. Laboratory tests were carried out at a model workstation. Over 50% of people tested had problems with concentration when exposed to low-frequency noise.
