This paper studies the way in which elevators movement produces work perturbing noises. The studies were made on two types of buildings: a modern building, with noiseless elevators and another one with old elevators. Also, the measurements took place during 900-1700, highlighting the way in which the noise level increases over the period when the elevators are most used: at the beginning and at the end of the work shift and at lunch break. This noise can be soften by using absorbent materials along with the replacing of the old elevators with new and performing ones.
