Noise reduction leads to performance improvements
Noise in the workplace has become a major socio-political problem in recent decades. Noise-induced hearing loss remains one of the leading occupational diseases. In Germany, several million workers are exposed to noise at work that is harmful to their health and, in particular, their hearing. Every year thousands of new cases of occupational noise deafness are reported.
Noise therefore poses a significant risk to health, including the ears, and a burden on performance, with noise disturbances leading to adverse effects even at low levels. Noise reduction, on the other hand, leads to improved performance and the avoidance of errors. This is particularly noticeable by a reduced error rate in production.
Noise emissions should be taken into account when purchasing machines. Sound emission can be reduced by retrospective measures such as sound insulation capsules, silencers, etc. In addition, physiological factors are positively influenced by measures to reduce noise. This contributes, among other things, to the fact that workers become ill less frequently.
