The growing interest of management in industrial noise problems is brought about by the prospect that loss of hearing among workers exposed to excessive noise may be considered compensable in certain states. It is not the purpose of this paper to discuss the legal aspects of this problem, but rather to review some of the technical factors of industrial noise exposures and their control in the foundry and other industries, and also to discuss briefly the background leading to our present problems, the plans which are being formu lated for their solution and certain practical approaches to noise control. It is important, therefore, that all of the unknown factors relating to this problem should be classified.
