What is an Audiogram/Audiometry?
How can they help promote hearing conservation?
Did you know one of the most common workplace ailments has to do with hearing? Loud noises, especially those related to industrial, construction, and manufacturing jobs, put a lot of strain on workers. Depending on the intensity and time exposed to such noises, employees can experience permanent and temporary hearing loss as well as other related health issues.
Audiograms and Audiometric Testing
As an employer, it is important to provide employees exposed to loud noises a baseline audiogram that acts as the foundation for long term protection and hearing conservation. Utilizing regular hearing conservation tests and audiograms, employers can teach their employees about the health and safety risks associated with the job at hand if proper procedures aren’t followed.
