Audiometric Hearing Tests
You must provide health surveillance (hearing checks) for all your employees who are likely to be regularly exposed above the upper exposure action value, or are at risk for any reason, e.g. they already suffer from hearing loss or are particularly sensitive to damage.
The purpose of health surveillance is to:
- Warn you when employees might be suffering from early signs of hearing damage.
- Give you an opportunity to do something to prevent the damage getting worse.
- Check that control measures are working.
Sound Advice Safety & Health Ltd carry out all hearing tests inside an audiometric booth in one of our purpose built mobile medical units.
According to the HSE, hearing checks are unlikely to constitute audiometric testing unless the measurements are done in a proper acousting check booth.
The hearing tests are carried out to HSE guidelines, using the categorisation method, as per the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. Any employee whose hearing test is below an acceptable level will be sent to their GP for further investigation.
