Introduction

Noise is one of the most prevalent causes of hearing related health problems. Exposure to a high level of noise may lead to hearing loss and may cause other health issues. High level noise exposure can cause two kinds of health effects: auditory and non-auditory effects.

Auditory effects may include hearing impairment or hearing loss which can be temporary or permanent.

Non-auditory effects may include:

  • Stress
  • Psychological or behavioural difficulties
  • Sleeping problems
  • Cardiovascular problems
