Abstract
The ways in which high noise levels affect workers' physical and mental health are examined in terms of general stress reactions, physical disorders, mental and emotional difficulties, and special problems. The results to date are not definitive, but are suggestive of a need for much more study aimed at clarifying the health significance of noise in terms of extra-auditory factors. Noise is considered not only dangerous to hearing, but capable of inducing reflex responses, stress, and disturbances in employee attitudes and feelings.
