The noise has auditory effects such as hearing loss and tinnitus, and non-auditory physiological effects such as hypertension and ischemic heart disease. Also, the noise influences daily life psychosocially and behaviorally. In this paper, we described the situation of noise exposure and noise-induced hearing loss in South Korea industry, and investigated the health effects of noise. In addition, to reduce noise exposure in the workplace, we examined the environmental noise measurement, exposure limits, special medical examination for the early diagnosis of noise-induced hearing loss, and systematic programs for hearing conservation.
Key Words: Noise, Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), Prevention, Korea.
