From 2006 there has been a legal requirement for employers with an at risk workforce to ensure regular checks are made of their employees hearing. As a general rule of thumb, industrial hearing tests are required for all workers exposed to noise above 85dB – this includes occupations where staff use heavy machinery and power tools for more than half an hour every day, as well as people who work in nightclubs and music venues.

Hearing Healthcare Centre can undertake industrial hearing screening for your employees to not only assess whether an employee has any hearing loss, but we’ll also explain how they can protect their hearing in the future. Each test only takes 20 minutes and, at the end of it, we’ll be able to recommend the best options for hearing protection.

Noise at work legislation is a serious consideration for employers and employees alike, especially as the First Action Level in Europe was decreased from 85dB to 80dB in February 2006. It’s therefore, essential for employers to protect their staff against irreversible hearing loss or conditions such as tinnitus.

At Hearing Healthcare Centre, we offer a range of Industrial Hearing Tests for companies who are, by law, required to provide annual hearing tests to their employees due to a loud working environment.
