Employers have an obligation to provide audiometric testing for workers who are required to frequently use personal hearing protection to safeguard them from noise that exceeds the exposure standard set out in Safe Work Australia’s WHS regulations.
How can Hayden Health & Safety help your business meet its occupational noise management obligations?
The Noise Assessment and Audiometric Assessment services offered by Hayden Health & Safety, combined with our expertise and years of experience, can assist employers to:
- provide your workforce with information, education and instruction on prevention and management of risks associated with noise hazards,
- identify individuals who are at increased risk of, or may already have, occupational noise-induced hearing loss,
- monitor your employees’ hearing levels, and flag any of concern,
- ensure early intervention and treatment is provided to employees identified as showing a temporary or permanent hearing threshold shift,
- interpret and manage results of audiometric testing.
How can Hayden Health & Safety help you meet auditory assessment requirements?
Hayden Health & Safety offer on-site audiometric testing in our custom-made testing vehicle, fitted with two hearing booths. Utilising our mobile audiometric testing service enables you to have your staff tested and back to work fast, with minimal disruption to work operations.
