||Noise is a complex issue. For occupational physicians, it often implies hearing loss and compensation. However, it is a much broader public hygiene issue. It is generally accepted that noise causes discomfort. There is often a cumulative effect of exposure to occupational and environmental noise, caused for example by noisy leisure activities. Topics covered: physical aspects of noise and technical means of noise attenuation, noise perception, effects of noise on the body, regulatory aspects. Although considered primarily from the occupational perspective, the various aspects of noise are also discussed with reference to their possible environmental impact.
