Environmental Noise - a Definition

Environmental noise is the summary of noise pollution from outside, caused by transport, industrial and recreational activities. Noise is frequently described as 'unwanted sound', and, within this context, environmental noise is generally present in some form in all areas of human activity.

Occupational Noise - a Definition

Noise is defined as all sound in the workplace, either wanted or unwanted and is one of the most common Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) hazards and is found in many different environments. Prolonged exposure to excessive noise can result in irreversible damage to a person's hearing and a reduction in their quality of life.
