Do your employess suffer from noise damage?

Construction Noise Damage

Do your employees use noisy powered tools or machinery for more than half an hour each day?

Background Noise Damage

Do your employees have to raise their voices to carry out a normal conversation when about 2 m apart for at least part of the day?

Daily Noise Damage

Is the noise intrusive for most of the working day? Examples could include exposure to noise from a busy street, a vacuum cleaner or a crowded restaurant.

Industrial Noise Damage

Do you work in a noisy industry? Are machines running on a daily basis with loud motors or with impact noises

If employees are exposed to levels of noise that require them to wear hearing protection, then it is a legal requirement, set down by the Government’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that hearing screening programs be enforced at regular intervals. Not only does this provide peace of mind for the employee that their welfare is being protected by their employer, but it also ensures that all legal procedures have been appropriately performed, preventing disagreements regarding working conditions and potential litigation in the future

Employee hearing tests will typically comply with BSA Surveillance Audiometry recommendations through including the following:

  • Otoscopic examination (visually inspect of outer-ear health)
