The Effects of Noise Pollution on the Prevalence of High Blood Pressure and Abnormal Pulse Rate on Workers in select Industries in Nnewi


This study investigates the impact of noise pollution on the prevalence of high blood pressure and abnormal pulse rate among workers in selected industries in Nnewi, Nigeria. Utilizing a cross-sectional design, the research encompassed 250 workers exposed to varying levels of noise pollution. Data on blood pressure, pulse rate, and noise exposure were collected and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings reveal a significant correlation between prolonged exposure to high noise levels and increased instances of high blood pressure and abnormal pulse rates among the participants. These outcomes underscore the critical need for stringent noise control measures and regular health monitoring in industrial settings to mitigate the adverse health effects associated with noise pollution. This research contributes to the body of knowledge on occupational health, emphasizing the importance of creating a safer work environment to enhance workers’ wellbeing.

Keywords: noise pollution effects; high blood pressure prevalence; abnormal pulse rates; industrial workers.
