Are you compliant with the Governments Health & Safety regulations regarding Hearing surveillance for employees working in noise?

 

Requirements include:

  • Assessment for new employees 

  • Annual assessments for the first 2 years

  • Continual assessments every 3 years follow this initial period

  • Allowing employees access to their results

Hearing tests will be carried in accordance with the BSA Standards for Surveillance Audiology, details can be found here: Front page (thebsa.org.uk)

Do my employees need a hearing test?

The hearing conservation program requires employers to monitor noise exposure levels in a way that accurately identifies employees exposed to noise at or above 85 decibels (dB) averaged over 8 working hours, or an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA).

 

What is the procedure?

To minimise disruption to your working day we can come to you. We just need access to a quiet, private room, all our equipment is portable. If you would prefer, appointments can be booked at either one of our clinics.

Your employees will be provided with a personal copy of their results, which will be explained to them.

As employers you will also receive a copy which can be anonymous if required.
