Abstract This report reviews the research on subjective, behavioural and psychophysiological effects of noise with emphasis on research relevant to noise problems in the working environment. Noise characteristics and other factors which influence these effects of noise are discussed. The aim is to provide a better empirical basis for those who work with problems of noise at levels below that which causes hearing damage.
