Businesses can consider installing sound proof material, playing music and planting plants in order to reduce noise in a working environment. A noise-free workplace can also have a positive effect on employees and help them to concentrate better.
AT THE WORKPLACE
Workplace noise is not, very often, considered a cause for concern. But continuous distraction caused by noise can cause long-term damage to our senses of hearing and touch. In today’s day and age of open-office systems, erecting walls is not a viable solution. Here’s how to reduce noise pollution at the workplace.
A great way to reduce distracting noise at the workplace is to play soothing music or even better, to allow employees to listen to music of their own choice using headphones.
Offices should install soundproof material like acoustic panels on walls and use suspended ceilings to absorb extra sound and reduce noise pollution.
Promote a green working place and add plants to the office. This reduces noise pollution as plants absorb sound. There are also added benefits of employees feeling calmer and energized.
