We designed this study to measure the Percussion caused by pneumatic drill( 32gram) which is used commonly in different in city services. this study have been performed in the summer of 1375 in Hamedan. The results demonstrated that the average background noise level (including environment and compressor) was 92.4 with standard deviation of 5.4 dBC, the average background noise level of the drills while working was 109.6 dBC with the standard deviation of about 2.2dBC and the average peaking factor was 18.6 with a standard deviation of 3.7dBC. the average background noise level of the drills while working in a distance of 5m, 10m and 20m from the source respectively were 98.6 dBA(with a standard deviation of 2.8dBA), 91.5dBA(with a standard deviation of2.6dBA) and 86.8dBA with a standard deviation of 2.8dBA).Based on the obtained results and the potential effects of exposure to noise which mainly can be summarized to damage to auditory system, interference with the communication skills, neural excitation, Hypertension and tachycardia the side effects of noise should be taken in to account seriously.Based on the mounting evidences regarding the adverse impact of working in the noisy environment and the damaging consequences of living in such atmospheres and the findings of the current study which confirms that the noise exposure level is more than allowed limit, the health of the workers and citizens is threaded by the noise pollution factors mentioned in the current study and serious considerations should be taken in to account.
