International Noise Awareness Day (INAD), April 27, 2022

 

International Noise Awareness Day (INAD) aims to raise awareness of the effects of noise on the health and welfare of individuals and populations worldwide. It was founded in 1996 by the Center of Hearing and Communication (CHC).

The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) would like to encourage everyone to participate in INAD 2022 by raising awareness of the harmful effects of noise on hearing, health and quality of life. Protect your hearing, protect your health!

Recipe for A Quiet Diet

Take these simple steps from the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC) to preserve the quiet in your life.

  • Pay attention to the noises you make and respect your neighbor’s right to peace and quiet.
  • Turn down the volume two notches on your radios and personal stereo systems with headphones.
  • Turn down the volume one notch on your television.
  • Do NOT honk your horn, except in the case of imminent danger.
  • Do NOT tip cab drivers who honk their horns illegally.
  • Avoid noisy sports events, restaurants, rock concerts and nightclubs unless you use hearing protection.
  • Replace noisy activities with quiet ones such as taking a walk, visits to libraries and museums.
  • Ask your health club instructor to lower the music.
  • Ask the movie theater manager to turn down the volume.
  • Wear adequate hearing protection if you must be in a noisy environment (the subway, mowing the lawn)
  • Turn off the television during dinner and have a quiet conversation instead.
  • Get a free hearing screening.
  • Attend a town meeting to review (or develop) a local, enforceable noise ordinance.
  • Spread the word about the danger of noise,

And remember… observe one minute of no noise from 2:15 – 2:16 pm (regardless of location/time zone).

Noise Awareness Lesson Plans

These lessons can be used for most grades to learn about measuring sound and hearing anatomy.

Sound Measures – Students use a sound level meter to measure, compare and graph sound levels in different environments.

Your Ear – Students explore how the ear hears and work through an interactive demonstration.

How Loud is Too Loud? – Students create a wheel that will show them various sound sources, the decibels , and allowable exposure time.

Loud Sounds Bookmarks – Students familiarize themselves with the idea that some sounds can be too loud.
