|Abstract:||High noise level causes psychological effects and physical damage, including irritability, loss of concentration, anxiety and increased pulse rate. A one minute exposure to a sound level over 100dBA can cause permanent hearing loss. The studies show that a large number of textile workers, especially weavers, suffer from occupational hearing loss. The machinery manufacturers made considerable efforts in keeping the noise emission as low as possible while improving the speed of their machines, but the measures are not adequate to protect the textile workers from occupational hearing loss.|
