How does sound affect us

Noise is an underestimated threat that can cause a number of short- and long-term health problems, such as for example sleep disturbance, cardiovascular effects, poorer work and school performance, hearing impairment, etc.

* 40% in EU is exposed to traffic noise at levels over 55 db

* 20%
is exposed to levels exceeding 65 dB during the daytime

*>30%
is exposed to levels exceeding 55 dB at night.

- consistent evidence that noise exposure harms cognitive performance.

- consistent association with impaired well-being and motivation to a slightly more limited extent.

- moderate evidence of effects on blood pressure and catecholamine hormone secretion.

The maximum safe threshold for humans is 80 decibels. For those who work above the limit, in the long run will have a hearing loss. Therefore it is advisable to conduct a medical examination or hearing examinations periodically in an effort to prevent Noise Induced Hearing Lose or deafness due to noise.
