Overview of Noise Pollution

Noise is becoming an increasingly omnipresent, yet unnoticed form of pollution even in developed countries.

Many researchers have studied the effects of noise on man and his environment. Onuu (1999) concluded that the environmental noise climate

due to road traffic in urban areas has shown strong dependence on the number of heavy vehicles in particular and of course vehicle speed and other parameters such as ground cover. It is worthy of note that prolonged exposure to low frequency noise can cause either permanent or temporal damage to hearing. The effect of noise on human emotions ranges from negligible through annoyance and anger to psychologically disruptive. Physiologically, noise can range from harmless to painful and physically damaging, (Akpan et al., 2003). Murray and Lewis (1995)  studied environmental noise correction factors for typical industrial work rooms using field measurement techniques and found the result to be more accurate than the calculated value which was incorrect by as much as 4dB.

Industrial plant noise is considered a principal source of noise in our communities. Numerous industrial plant workers and communities are affected continuously by such noise. Onuu et al. (1996) studied the sound levels and spectra of industrial noise of nine industrial layouts in Calabar, Cross Rivers State of Nigeria and found the octave band pressure levels to be well  above 85 dB (A) which is the starting point where damage risk is thought to be imminent. From the survey, they also found that the deafening level produced by the machinery noise was as high  as 115 dB (A). High noise levels in industry may reduce productivity and the efficiency of workers. Additionally, a lot of industrial accidents are caused by excessive noise. Furthermore, industrial noise in plants, depending on the spectral distribution and amplitude, may annoy, interfere with speech and hearing, accelerate presbycusis, or cause irreversible hearing damage. It also has pathological danger.




In this chapter, we would describe how the study was carried out.
