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.
