Audiometry

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.
