Why Should We Implement A Program?
As per Work Health & Safety Regulations (2017), an employer must ensure that the noise an employee is exposed to at work does not exceed the exposure standard for noise. The exposure standard refers to eight (8) hours continuous equivalent noise exposure of 85 dB(A) or a peak sound pressure level of 140 dB(C).
For workers whom are frequently required to use personal protective equipment to protect them from the risk of hearing loss, audiogram assessment is recommended. Testing should be completed within 3 months of the employee commencing their role, and then at least every two years following. (WHSR, 2017)
Audiogram assessment not only helps meet your legal obligations, by also supports the overall health and safety of your team.
Assist Group Audiogram Assessments are conducted in accordance with AS/NZS1269.4:2014 Occupational Noise Management: Part 4 (Auditory Assessment)
Our audiometric assessments include:
- A review previous noise exposure (both work and non-work related)
- Identification of known, pre-existing ear and hearing issues
- Standard air conduction audiogram
*Employee PPE (ear plugs/ear muffs) inspection is available on request, including demonstration and instruction on correct PPE use.
Following the audiogram assessment Assist Group supply a copy of the audiograms results and associated recommendations.
Where required, company results can also be analysed to:
- identify trends between hearing abnormalities and sections within your company, and to
- compare present results with previous audiogram assessment results.
In clinic and on site Options
Audiogram Assessments can be conducted both in clinic and on site. To ensure assessment quality, background and ambient noise levels are assessed as per Australian Standard AS/NZ 1269.4:2014.
