Evaluation of risk perception related with environmental noise among residents living in different vicinities of wind turbines 

Author:  | Turkey

ABSTRACT – This cross-sectional study assessed residents’ risk perceptions and associated factors in three rural areas by administering a face-to-face questionnaire to 282 subjects. The association between the perception of risk related to wind turbines and related factors such as noise and annoyance was analysed. Outdoor A-weighted sound pressure levels were measured for all. According to regression analysis, age (B: −0.008, 95% CI: −0.015/−0.002), education (B: 0.415, 95% CI: 0.148/−0.682), noise level day (B: −0.040, 95% CI: −0.068/−0.013), noise annoyance indoors (B: 0.504, 95% CI: 0.227/0.781) and distance (B: 0.000, 95% CI: 0.000/0.000) had a significant effect on high risk perception (p < 0.05). This demonstrates that, in addition to noise, non-acoustic factors also influence risk perception. Ensuring community participation and considering distance before installation could prevent negative risk perceptions and annoyance.
