The article provides a general description of injuries and occupational morbidity at meat processing enterprises of the agroindustrial complex, and a detailed analysis of the problem using the example of a meat processing plant. The study found that increased noise is one of the provocateurs of many occupational diseases in the industry. Another negative consequence of the increased noise level is the decrease in the productivity of workers. Thus, the significance of the problem of protecting workers from increased noise levels lies primarily in ensuring both social and economic benefits, as well as reducing staff turnover, manifesting a period of active work by workers and increasing satisfaction from the work process.
