Abstract This is a task report of effort directed toward the identification of the most severe sources of industrial machinery noise from an occupational perspective, and to develop information on trade associations which would be concerned with noise research. Accomplishments include: ranked 19 industries in terms of their relative noise intensity and their ability to finance machinery noise reduction; identified 357 machines over 20 industries; identified characteristic sound pressure levels for 236 machines over 19 industries; contacted 58 trade associations; reviewed 32o abstracts of machinery noise publications. The findings of the study include: the most noise intensive industries are those heavily involed in metal cutting and metal forming; prime machinery noise sources are those machines which cut or form metal, high speed machines and those machines which move material; trade associations provide a limited technology base for reducing machine noise; and open literature should provide a limited base for assessing the technology that has been applied to reducing machine noise.
