This paper is from the proceedings of a second international conference on noise as a public health hazard. Funded by the Office of Noise Abatement and Control of the Environmental Protection Agency, these conference proceedings serve as a source material summarizing all known criteria that could be used in establishing national standards for noise control. The conference limited content to the effects of noise on health, thus eliminating discussions of a technical engineering or legal nature. Numerous topics discussed at the conference include: noise-induced hearing loss; community response; and sleep disturbance due to noise. The paper presented here concerns noise and its effect on the hearing of speech. In this research, the author reports that the speech interference level depends upon a number of varying factors. Among these are the octaves chosen for speech communication, the types of speech discrimination tests used, and the wearing of ear plugs or muffs by normal and hearing loss subjects. (Ma)

Although many of the findings related to noise lend themselves to a variety of interpretations, there is general agreement on a number of factors: 1. Noises of sufficient intensity have caused irreversible hearing damage. 2. Noises have produced physiological changes in humans and animals that in many instances have not resulted in adaptation. 3. The effects of noise are cumulative and, therefore, the levels and durations of noise exposure must be taken into account in any overall evaluation. The recognition of this fact has been translated into legislation specifying limits of total permissible noise exposure in industrial settings. 4. Noises can interfere with speech and other communication. 5. Noise can be a major source of annoyance by disturbing sleep, rest, and relaxation. 6. When community noise levels have reached sufficient intensity, social action has occurred to reduce their effects, This has often taken the form of creating new organizations (or using existing ones) to press for regulation by means of laws, ordinances and standards. - Overview
