Deafness in the workplace is a concern of most employers. The Health and Safety Executive estimates that 2 million people in the UK are exposed to levels of noise at work which puts them at risk of permanent hearing loss. Did you know that if employees are exposed to daily noise levels of 80-85dB or above, the employer is obliged by law to provide hearing testing on a regular basis? National Audiometry Services can help employers protect their workforce from noise induced hearing loss arising from exposure to noise in the workplace. We can conduct workplace assessments in compliance with The Noise at Work Regulations 2005 to establish whether your employees are being exposed to excessive levels of noise. We offer hearing tests that quantify the frequencies and volumes of sounds that an individual can hear, and so determine whether an employee is suffering from hearing loss. Employees’ hearing levels are then monitored by us over a period of time so that we can identify whether their exposure to noise at work is having any detrimental effect on their hearing. If it is found that the levels of noise created in your workplace are having an adverse effect on your employees’ hearing we can offer advice on how to reduce this problem. It is easy to safeguard your employees against losing their hearing as a result of noise at work. An audiometric test, or hearing test, is non-obtrusive and only takes around 15 minutes. We would take the employee into a quiet room and conduct an ear examination using an otoscope – this is to make sure there is no excess wax in the ear or anything else in there which might distort the hearing. The employee then listens to a series of beeps at varying volumes and frequency. When the beep is audible, the employee pushes a hand held button. It’s that simple. We then analyse the results and create an audiogram – this is a graph showing the employees hearing threshold. We calculate whether the employee has a hearing level that is typical of a person of their age, of whether there is any sign of hearing loss. If it is suspected that there is hearing loss, the employee is referred to a specialist for further investigation. This test is then repeated annually for the first two years, then once every three years thereafter providing that no deterioration is found. If an employee does show signs of hearing loss we will recommend a scheme of noise protection and then re-test the employee every year until there is no further deterioration. Workplace Noise Assessment When a workplace noise assessment is required a thorough survey of all work areas is undertaken, allowing for us to build a picture of which areas of a workplace create particularly high levels of noise. This is done in two ways – using a hand held sound level meter and also using DoseBadges which are small lightweight microphones which clip onto employees clothing and monitor their complete noise exposure for the desired time.
