Audiometric testing is required of employers whose employees are exposed to an eight hour time-weighted average (TWA) of 85 decibels (calculated on the "A" scale). Although much is said of compliance with the law as promulgated by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Noise Exposure Standard 29 CFR 1910.95, the ultimate purpose is to avoid hearing loss. Your occupational noise exposure survey will assist you in determining the employees who should have annual hearing testing.
On-site testing is an economical way to conduct audiometric testing as it is efficient and requires the least amount of time from the job.
Audiometric testing can be conducted on-site with our mobile test unit which accommodates up to three employees every 12 minutes, or 15 per hour. Individual audiometric testing can also be conducted with our portable test booth which can be located in any area of your facility which is office-quiet.
New hire and diagnostic testing can be accommodated at one of our clinical offices located in Tulsa, Muskogee or Pryor.
All testing is evaluated by a licensed audiologist or CAOHC Certified Hearing Conservationist. We employ the HearTrak System (TM) for all clients which provides the most comprehensive management reporting available. Audiometric evaluation and interpretation is conducted by our staff audiologist. All test results are accompanied by an employee letter, ready for distribution by the employer.
If prior years' test results are available from employment physicals, or from other service providers, we will input the results into your company's database at no additional charge.
With our reporting, we provide documented verification of exhaustive calibration of equipment as well as tester credentials. This provides our client with all the data necessary in an annual stand-alone report.
