The Importance of Audiometric Testing

The hearing of workers exposed to noise can be monitored through regular audiometric tests. Testing is an important part of a hearing conservation program to manage risks from noise exposure in a workplace. Any changes in a person's hearing levels revealed by audiometric testing should be investigated as to their cause(s) and the need for corrective action.

Audiometric testing should also be provided to workers exposed to acoustic shock in call centres or to workplace ototoxins (chemicals that may either alone, or when combined with noise, result in hearing loss).
