The level of noise produced by machinery and its arrangement insides a factory is indicated to be a maximum of 96.1 dB(A). The maximum level of noise from a commoner's house outside the factory is shown to be 62.9 dB(A), which exceeds 60 dB(A), the permitted limit of noise level in a time period of day. us study has predicted the level of noise reduction according to a step by step prevention plan by considering the characteristics of the causes of noise, the permitted limit of noise levels, problems and economical efficiency attendant upon the noise prevention measures. Establishing target levels of noise each of the three steps of the noise prevention plan. The predicted level of noise at the place of a commoner's house in accordance with the first step is 50.0 - 59.0 dB(A), and can satisfy the permitted limit of noise in a time period of the day. In taking prevention measures for the second step, the noise level is 50.7 - 53.6 dB(A) which is less than 55 dB(A) in a time period of the evening, the permitted limit of noise in a time period of night., and it can meet 47.4 - 50.3 dB(A) in the third step.
