How many people do you know complain about noise at their workplace? Maybe not many, but the truth is that some just get used to it and ignore the loud machines or tools. According to 2007 research, done by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH); around twenty two million Americans have experience with high level of noise at their jobs.
People get bothered when there are construction sites in their neighborhood as they are always noisy, or when a club in their apartment building is playing loud music every day of the week. But people rarely stop to think about the people who work there, often because they have no other choice but to work in those places to survive and how much that noise harms their health.
