In order to determine what decibel level causes auditory defects or noiseinduced hearing loss (NIHL), this paper examines the impact of noise on Nigerian factory workers. The paper focuses primarily on the evaluation of hearing impairment and the severity of its connection to exposure to loud sounds (acoustic trauma), as well as the role of hearing protective devices for preventing NIHL in the workplace. The article also explains how the results and recommendations might be used as preventative measures in the relevant businesses. Seventy (60) people were chosen at random from three (3) different industrial sectors. Based on the hypothesis that prolonged exposure to loud noise, in this case on the job, can cause permanent hearing loss without the aid of hearing protection, the authors of this study surveyed the various effects of noise on human health and the various steps of noise control in such settings, finding a statistically significant difference in the hearing threshold within the selected industries over the selected period of time.
