Abstract

A major effort is being made today to educate young people about the many things that can hurt them, both immediately and later in life. Considerable effort is expended to convince teenagers that drugs, alcohol, smoking, and other obvious risks can impair or destroy their normal body functions (Gasaway, 1985). Unfortunately, noise does not receive that same degree of concern. “Concerted efforts to educate 40 million Americans who work, play, and live around dangerously loud environmental noise suggest that students may not exercise ordinary caution regarding over-exposure to loud noises” (Frager, 1986, p.166).
