Industrial hearing test
For health and safety, there are specifically designed noise level hearing tests to make sure every workers hearing is not being compromised.
We are proud to say we offer that service and provide industrial hearing protection where required.
Noise induced hearing loss is something all employers should be aware of, to ensure staff are safe, healthy (increasing their productivity) and to avoid possible hearing loss claims.
You wouldn’t run a business which isn’t health and safety compliant, therefore ensuring noise level industrial testing is just as important.
You must be compliant with the requirements of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations Act of 2005. Protection in noisy work environments is essential.
The act largely applies to the construction industry, however, protection is essential in all noisy work environments.
Our Industrial Hearing Test Procedure
Human eardrums do not favour specific frequencies over our own natural vocal frequencies.
Employers and employees alike, no longer have to risk their safety in noisy environments, every time they wish to have a conversation. We ensure a wearers hearing is not entirely blocked potentially causing further hazards, simply reducing noise enough to remain within safe levels.
- We conduct a lifestyle assessment
- We use a combination of education, noise filters, taking a historical record of each patient
- We conduct a thorough hearing assessment
- We check hearing levels categorising people tested so they remain audiologically safe in their working environment
- We do both on site and off site testing
The long-term cost saving in comparison to disposable ear plugs or badly fitted ear defenders is worth the upfront cost. Inadequate protection should never be worn, the risk of ear protection falling out or slipping off is not only uncomfortable for the wearer, however, redundant in its purpose as the eardrums will be exposed to a loud environment once again.
Our custom made ear plugs or ear defenders, depending on your preference, are specifically designed to keep out the harmful sounds of industrial machinery, construction equipment and heavy plant. It has been proven, that when an individual is properly and safely equipt, workforce productivity increases.
We supply hearing protection for employers and employees where necessary. Our professional hearing test procedure will ensure all aspects of an individuals hearing are identified, with our qualified audiologists relaying a jargon-free explanation.
We also supply other various custom plugs and protection for sports and hobbies too, e.g. musicians and swimmers.
