||This article analyzes the consequences of noise exposure from an ergonomic point of view, with emphasis on its extra-auditory effects. In addition to hearing loss, the consequences described are the following: disorders of the digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, and central and autonomous nervous systems, and of the visual and vestibular functions; annoyance and distraction due to noise and distractions; speech interference; behavioural effects; psychosocial effects. Acceptable noise levels, including speech interference levels, as well as relevant directives of the European Union and ISO and UNE standards are surveyed. Tables are included.
