Audiometry testing or, as it is often called, hearing testing service can be offered to operatives to protect their health and wellbeing.
These hearing tests are very convenient, simple to engage and cause minimal disruption with each hearing test only taking 15 – 20 minutes per person.
The hearing test service is designed to be compliant with the statutory Health Screening requirements as laid down by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or more specifically the Noise at Work Regulations (2005) for those employees exposed to noise at work.
On-site, all that is needed is the use of a convenient and quiet room near to the workforce for the Occupational Health Advisor to work through the hearing tests for exposed staff in whatever order or timetable that suits.
When the test is conducted, the Occupational Health Advisor explains the results to the operative, and then at the end of the day, will give a quick debrief to the Manager and produce a summarised Management report for record purposes.
All hearing test results are retained confidentially and as dictated by the Noise at Work Regs, having the previous hearing test records also allows comparisons on subsequent visits to detect early signs of any abnormal deterioration in hearing capacity and therefore helps tackle issues before they become a more serious problem.
