Noise impacts the quality of our lives. High noise levels can cause hearing damage, and evironmental noise can have negative health effects. Noise can range from an annoyance to a life changing impact.
Controlling noise improves the quality of life. Reducing noise can prevent hearing loss. Limiting environmental noise can improve home life and reduce health effects. Noise/sound level is a defining attribute for many products.
Controlling noise requires the application of engineering principles. Engineering controls may involve changes to the sound source, absorption or barriers along the sound path, or as a last resort, ear protection.
