What is Audiometry

Audiometry is hearing checks. The Noise at Work Regulations require employers to ensure that their business activities do not damage their employees’ hearing. Under the Noise at Work Regulations an employer must provide health surveillance (hearing checks) for all employees who are likely to be exposed above the upper exposure action value of 85dBA on a regular basis, or are at risk for any reason, such as already suffer from hearing loss or are particularly sensitive to damage.

The purpose of health surveillance hearing checks 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 noise control measures are working

We can help you to manage your requirements to provide health surveillance under the Noise at Work Regulations. These can be part of a health surveillance program or a standalone hearing check. It typically includes a questionnaire and a comprehensive hearing test.

Following the hearing check health surveillance the employee and the employer will be given a Fitness for Work Certificate stating the outcome as fit for work or fit for work with restrictions.

Where can Hearing Check Health Surveillance be Carried Out

As with most of our services, these can be at your workplace or our offices in Wootton Bassett. If it’s only a handful of people or individuals then our office works well, where we have a soundproof booth available, otherwise it makes sense to arrange at your workplace.

Addicted to Gaming?

Those of us who are older enough to remember 1970’s or 80’s the decades when the first real game consoles started to appear that had any real playability like the 1972 Magnavox Odyssey, the first ever home console you could link to the TV. Nowadays, people are becoming addicted to gaming and it could affect work…

Occupational health Surveillance for Recycling Company

Due to differing Health and Safety regulations overseas employees may have been exposed to different levels of toxicity which may have created exposure above current UK COSHH exposure limits.

Face fit Testing for Paint Production Company in Calne

This paint company in Calne had been informed by the HSE that they were non-compliant with correct PPE for their workers, who were being potentially over exposed to harmful chemicals. There was a gap with face fit testing of RPE (respiratory protective equipment)…face masks to normal people.
