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.
