Hearing Tests (Audiometry)

Product Number: H01

The regulations (Occupational Health and Safety Regulations -Noise, 2007) state that "anyone who is issued with, or is required to wear hearing protection to control their exposure to noise must have their hearing tested within 3 months of commencement and at least every 2 years thereafter".

 We can provide this comprehensive service to your organisation with a minimum amount of disruption to your employees’ work program. We bring our well equipped mobile audiometric van (with inbuilt sound attenuating booth) to you, thereby reducing your employee down time to no more than 10 - 15 minutes each.

 Our Audiometrists are fully qualified and registered with the Health and Safety Organisation, VWA and the Federal Office of Hearing Services, and all equipment and testing is performed in accordance with all relevant standards and regulations.

 Our computerised records management system then provides you with all the necessary documentation, only requiring the minimum input from your own administration staff to distribute the letters to the individuals.
