When talking about noise, the first question raised in our minds is most commonly external noise on a Friday night coming from loud music blasting from the neighbor’s party next door or the sound of bikes and cars driving along the road at full speed.

When talking about noise, the first question raised in our minds is most commonly external noise on a Friday night coming from loud music blasting from the neighbor’s party next door or the sound of bikes and cars driving along the road at full speed. These are just a small part of it, the main problem is actually renowned worldwide and it is called «Noise pollution». Noise pollution is becoming an increasing concern in many large cities and neighborhoods as it has a harmful impact on the state of mind and performance levels of individuals.

Noise pollution can cause multiple physical and psychological health problems. According to the World Health Organization, children are especially vulnerable to noise and this affects both health and behavior. Moreover, noise pollution adversely affects the productivity of employees, school kids and students.

Nowadays noise is treated as a serious environmental problem all over the world, including South Africa. South African law differentiates between «Disturbing Noise» and «Noise Nuisance» which are both illegal as per the Environment Conservation Act (73 of 1989) and the Regulations for Noise Control.
