Sound is defined in terms of the sense of hearing. Noise, its effects and measurement, are discussed. A chapter on noise and the law reviews noise sources (vehicles, railway, work place, construction), legislation, and noise control. Some suggestions are made regarding noise reduction and personal protection against noise in the home, the neighbourhood and the work place. (TRRL)
