Employers have a duty to provide health surveillance (hearing checks) for all employees who are likely to be regularly exposed to high levels of noise within their job role.
Audiometry testing, measures a person’s hearing ability, identifying at risk employees and detecting damage to hearing from exposure to high levels of noise known as Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL). Early detection will enable employers to implement robust control measures and fulfil their legal requirements.
At the start of the assessment, the patient will be asked a series of questions about their hearing history, current symptoms and hearing protection usage.
With the use of an audiometer, a test is performed to set a baseline, this will allow our Health Care Professionals to gauge the individuals hearing ability. A comparative test should then be undertaken 12 months later, then 2 yearly thereafter, unless cause for concern or as recommended by an occupational Health provider.
