Noise-induced hearing loss is preventable. The presence of potentially hazardous noise levels in the workplace is often unavoidable but there are steps you can take to minimise the risk to yourself and your co-workers.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005) state “If the risk assessment indicates that there is a risk to the health of employees who are, or are liable to be, exposed to noise, the employer shall ensure that such employees are placed under suitable health surveillance, which shall include testing of their hearing.”
Audiometric tests determine your hearing levels by using and audiometer. These tests also measure the ability to discriminate between different sound intensities, recognise pitch, or distinguish speech from background noise.
Results of an Audiometry Test and subsequent investigations can be used to diagnose hearing loss or diseases of the ear.
