Hi gh noise level causes psychological e ffects and physical damage, including irritability, loss o f concentration, anxiety and increased pulse rate. A one minute exposure to a sound level over IOOdBA can cause permanent hearing loss. The studies show that a large number of textil e workers, especially weavers, suffer from occupational hearing loss. The machinery manufacturers made considerable efforts in keeping the noise emission as low as possible while improvi ng the speed of thei r… Expand
