Why Are Workplace Hearing Tests Important?
Noise is part of everyday life but loud noise can permanently damage your hearing.
If your employees are working in an environment where they’re exposed to loud noise, workplace hearing tests and conservation program can assist in determining their exposure to risk.
A workplace hearing test should be carried out where the noise exceeds 85dB. As an approximate guide, this is where there is a need to raise your voice in a working environment in order to speak to someone at a distance of 1 metre.
Our audiometry testing services combines experienced operators with systems and procedures that will support the effective monitoring and recording of your employees hearing health.
