Audiometry (Hearing) Testing | Latus Health

Health Surveillance Audiometry (Hearing) Testing

Audiometry is the testing of hearing, and is required under the Control of Noise at Work Regulations, 2005. This applies to those workers who are regularly exposed to noise over the 85 dB, and also to those with reduced exposure but a higher/increased sensitivity to noise.

Health surveillance for hearing damage usually means:

  • regular hearing checks in controlled conditions;
  • telling employees about the results of their hearing checks;
  • keeping health records;
  • ensuring employees are examined by a doctor where hearing damage is identified.
Health Surveillance Audiometry

By law, as an employer, you must assess and identify measures to eliminate or reduce risks from exposure to noise so that you can protect the hearing of your employees.

Where the risks are low, the actions you take may be simple and inexpensive, but where the risks are high, you should manage them using a prioritised noise-control action plan.

Where required, ensure that:

  • hearing protection is provided and used;
  • any other controls are properly used; and
  • you provide information, training and health surveillance.
