We provide a complete OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) compliant program for their hearing screening program. Each year we test literally thousands of members that require audiometric testing either on site or at our office.
Each participant is tested and results sent on for documentation purposes as well as regular on going screenings. All aspects of the program are approved and compliant with OSHA regulations.
OSHA’s hearing conservation program is designed to protect workers with significant occupational noise exposures from suffering long term hearing loss.
The hearing conservation program requires employers to monitor the hearing of their workers on an annual basis and to provide an opportunity to educate employees about their hearing and the need to protect it.
The important elements of an audiometric testing program include baseline audiograms, training, and follow up procedures. Audiometric testing must be made available to all employees at no cost and those employees especially subjected to levels of 85DB or higher for an 8 hr day.
A licensed or certified audiologist must be responsible for the program and both professional and trained technician may administer the testing.
The baseline audiogram needs to be performed within the first six months of the employees first day on the job and subsequently one year annual evaluations to determine any changes to the baseline audiogram. Audiometric tests must be conducted in a room meeting specific background levels and with calibrated audiometers that meet ANSI standards.
We provide these services with reliability and accuracy, fulfilling the requirements of OSHA standards to area businesses.
