Noise pollution can negatively impact the body in significant ways including elevated blood
pressure, impaired cognitive functioning and chronic stress
Excessive noise can cause damage to the nerves in the inner ear Our ears can recover from a short exposure to load noise, but being around too much noise over an
extended period of time will eventually cause nerve damage and hearing loss
The louder the noise & longer the exposure, the greater the chance permanent damage will occur
Noise is measure in decibels (dB) using a sound level meter
Noise can range from a silent whisper (1dB) to a jet engine (140dB)
Noise levels above 140 decibels may cause immediate hearing loss
Everyone should wear hearing protection when working around noise levels above 85 decibels dB Noise Level Examples:
Use Personal Protective Equipment to Protect your Hearing
Earplugs, Ear Muffs or Both in extreme conditions
