About noise in 14 plant canteens and restaurants
A propos du bruit dans 14 cantines et restaurants d'entreprise. [in French]
This MD thesis gives an account of a study to determine if the noise recorded in plant canteens and restaurants during lunch was harmful or merely uncomfortable for the workers. The study of noise and its characteristics, its perception by man and its consequences for the individual is followed by an account of the conditions in which the worker has lunch, which should be a period of relaxation for him. The sound level he is subjected to at that time depends on numerous factors and is, for the restaurants studied, between 65 and 70 dB, occasionally 80 dB. Despite the difficulty of establishing standard levels not to be exceeded, the author concludes with the necessity of acting against noise in restaurant halls, even if noise is only a minor complaint of the users. He reviews the French legislation and the means of reducing this noise, which is an important discomfort and fatigue factor.
