Low-level noise and cognitive fatigue in communication and concentration demanding jobs

The project is also called the School Noise Project.

The project’s main purpose

The project’s main purpose is to study the importance of the surroundings’ acoustics, the teachers’ hearing and their experience of the psychosocial work environment for the devel­opment of cognitive fatigue in communication and concentration demanding jobs.

Low-level noise is in focus

The project deals with low-level noise which is characterised by:

  1. relatively low noise exposure levels,
  2. the absolute sound pressure level is only of minor significance for the noise annoyance and symptoms that are ascribed to noise.

Focus on acoustics, hearing and psychosocial factors

The project focuses on acoustics, hearing and psychosocial factors, as these elements pre­sum­ably lead to an added cognitive strain on communication and concentration demand­ing jobs in circumstances with background noise. The projects study design secures a large variation in both acoustic conditions and hearing ability while psychosocial factors and noise levels will be measured and included as covariates in the statistical analyses.
