The main goal of this study was to determine the perceptions of college physical education students, physical education professionals and undergraduate physical education program coordinators regarding noise in their profession. The study population was composed of 30 students, 30 professionals, and 5 undergraduate program coordinators in Physical Education from universities in Santa Catarina, Brazil. Two questionnaires were developed. The first was geared towards students and Physical Education professionals, and included questions regarding noise exposure, its effects on the vocal and auditory health, the interaction between these issues and their professional practice and the coverage of these topics in their undergraduate courses. The second questionnaire was geared towards undergraduate program coordinators and gathered information about the occupational conditions of student and professionals of Physical Education, and noise and health contents in the Physical Education undergraduate curriculum. The results of the research showed that noise exposure at work was considered moderate by 60% of the students and loud by 60% of the professionals. Twenty six percent of the students and professionals indicated that the gymnastic class in fitness academies was the noisiest activity in their profession, followed by the Physical Education class in schools, with 18,3%. The most frequently suggested noise control measures were lowering of the music volume during classes (25,0%) and the acoustic treatment at work places (20,0%). Among students and professionals, 28,3% complained of tinnitus, 51,6% complained of annoyance, and 43,3% complained of discomfort. Altered vocal quality was reported by 13,3% of the students and by 46,7% of the professionals. Sixteen percent of the students and 26,7% of the professionals complained of hearing difficulties. Although 16,7% of students were aware of vocal exercises only 3,3% used them. Amongst professionals, 20% reported to know these exercises or techniques, however only 10% use them in their work. Sixty percent of the undergraduate program coordinators reported that professionals in this area rarely make use of preventive exercises, even after receiving information about it. According to 73,3% of the students and 82,5% of the professionals, undergraduate courses did not offer instruction about noise and its implications for the auditory and vocal health. Amongst the coordinators, 60% reported that this kind of content is not provided by the courses; however 80% of them considered it extremely important to teach this knowledge. This study demonstrated the perceptions that students and professionals of Physical Education have regarding noise, their associated health complaints, and the lack of knowledge or use of preventive measures. Moreover, it indicated there is a lack of information on the issue of noise in Physical Education undergraduate programs although the need for this information is recognized.
