N

oise is recognized as an important stress factor in

numerous workplaces. Despite legal regulations and

recommendations for the highest allowed noise levels, there are

still many problems in practice resulting from noise exposure

such as hearing loss, stress and significant discomfort. We

studied the influence of noise on workers in two different

environments: a technical high school and a manufacturing

company. In both cases measurements of noise levels and

corresponding frequency noise analyses were performed.

In order to study personal noise perceptions, the workers

also completed an extended research survey. A comparison

between the survey’s results and experimentally determined

noise levels gives new insights into the health risks of noise

exposure in two very different working environments.
