  journal={arXiv: Medical Physics},
A lot of research has been carried out to find out the influence of low frequency noise on human behavior. Based on currently available results, some countries have been developing National Standard to limit the low frequency noise to protect people's health and working performance. However, after investigating 28 National Standards about noise limitation of working machine and other noise emission standards of China, it is found that the stipulation of low frequency noise covers limited…

Low frequency noise "pollution" interferes with performance.
The results suggest that the quality of work performance and perceived annoyance may be influenced by a continuous exposure to low frequency noise at commonly occurring noise levels and subjects categorised as high-sensitive to low Frequency noise may be at highest risk.
Evaluation of Low-Frequency Noise in Dwellings. New Polish Recommendations
This paper presents new Polish recommendations for the estimation of low-frequency noise (LFN) penetrating into dwellings from appliances installed inside or outside the building (Recommendation No
Low frequency noise and annoyance.
Conventional methods of assessing annoyance, typically based on A-weighted equivalent level, are inadequate for low frequency noise and lead to incorrect decisions by regulatory authorities, but do not deal adequately with fluctuations.
A procedure for the assessment of low frequency noise complaints.
The development and application of a procedure for the assessment of low frequency noise (LFN) complaints included laboratory tests addressing low frequency hearing threshold and the effect on acceptability of fluctuation, and field measurements complemented with interview-based questionnaires.
Effects of low frequency noise on man--a case study.
Based on a real case effects of long-term exposure of infrasound on man, a small heating plant was identified, which immitted into the house of the exposed people very low frequency airborne sound far below the common hearing thresholds.
Danish Guidelines on Environmental Low Frequency Noise, Infrasound and Vibration
In Denmark a set of guidelines for measurement and assessment of environmental low frequency noise, infrasound and vibration was published in 1997 as “Information from the Danish Environmental
A Structured Approach to LFS-Complaints in the Rotterdam Region of the Netherlands
The purpose of the approach on LFS is to offer the several organisations involved a handle to work with, in order to clarify the nature of the LFS complaints and structure them in a procedure.
