northern Sweden. The average dBA value in the schools was found to be 75 dBA.

fatigue. About 75 % of the workers had difficulties in hearing the voices from

others during more than on fourth of the working day. 90 per cent of the workers

considered that the noise made their work more difficult to carry out. The work

was correlated with high levels of stress and fatigue. The effects were reported

daily among one fourth of the workers. A significant correlation was observed

between annoyance due to noise and being burned out. About one forth of the

workers reported to have daily fatigue during work and spare time.
