The elephant in the room

 elephant

In this case the elephant in the room is noise pollution within the office. Noise is the number one complaint in an office according to surveys and can be one of the leading causes of stress. Have you ever felt that sometimes the working environment can be so loud that you can bearly even think? Below are the different types of noises that exist:

  • ·Steady – This is continuous background noise. This can be noise from an air conditioning unit or something similar.

  • ·Intermittent – This is sound that is irregular or that comes and goes. For example the ring from a telephone or the noise from a fax machine or printer.

  • ·Impact – These are short bursts of sound. This can be made from stationary or sounds from a computer.

These noises for the most part cannot be helped as activities in the office do tend to make noise. There are ways however that you can reduce the noise levels.

Screen Pods - These are effectively rooms inside rooms. They are made using acoustic screens and help keep meetings quiet occassions.

Acoustic Screens - These are freestanding or desktop screens that absorb and prevent reflections of sound waves around the office
