The Bernhard-Nocht-Institut fur Schiffs- und Tropenkrankheiten, the Hamburg medical establishment, has conducted a research study on noise-induced stress affecting the crews of German seagoing and inland-waterways ships, in order to make an accurate assessment of the current situation. The study was made on behalf of a West German government department, and a full report is to be published by the end of 1978. The present article is an abridgement of the report. For the study, investigation on noise conditions were made in 34 sea-going ships and 22 inland vessels, and information (from other sources) on over 400 other ships was also assessed. The investigations have resulted in recommendations on methods of noise-measurement, maximum permissible noise-levels, and some relevant ship-structure matters. Order from: BSRA as No. 48,905.
