Hearing Tests: Audiometry is used to check how effective your hearing conservation measures are. It is needed if employees are exposed to high noise levels.

Screening audiometry is compulsory for employees exposed to 85dB(A) (daily average exposure) and above. Typical clients are in the metal stamping and fabrication industry, timber, plastics molding, packaging, aero-space, Petroleum, textile, paper mills, printing, raw material and construction industries. Audiometry is the control mechanism to check the effectiveness of your hearing conservation programs. It is an early warning system, which enables the employer to take steps to reduce future harm. Claims for noise-induced hearing loss are still the most common occupational health (compensation) claim and audiometry will control future claims by informing those at high risk to the benefits of wearing protective devices.

Our IPS mobile hearing test Vans are all equipped with soundproof booths and clinical audiometers. We can perform 2 hearing tests every 5 minutes, or approximately 25 per hour.

Employees with noise-induced hearing loss are identified, as are any changes which may have occurred since a previous test. Non noise-induced hearing losses are also recorded. You receive the audiogram for each employee, with the individual evaluation, as well as a complete management report. Each employee receives a written explanation and protective recommendations.

The human ear provides the basics for recognizing sound waves
