What exactly is a Workplace
Noise Assessment or Noise Survey?

The terms noise assessment, noise survey, workplace noise testing, occupational noise assessment and workplace noise assessment are all interchangeable. To put them simply a noise assessment is the process of having a professional attend your business and measure the noise levels generated throughout your operations.

Each occupational noise assessment is different to the one before it as each business is unique. An assessor will attend your business and using equipment as specified in the Australia Standard for Occupational Noise Management will measure noise generated from machinery, tools and the environment from which your employee’s work within.

The Assessor will provide you with a workplace noise assessment report and if you are a Anitech Noise Assessment client  you will also receive a colour-coded noise map, compliance action plan and a full de-brief on your noise survey results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Audiometric Testing Required?

Audiometric tests are essential for ensuring workplace hearing safety. They help in identifying early signs of hearing loss caused by occupational noise exposure. Regular audiometry testing can prevent further hearing damage by enabling timely intervention and hearing protection measures. Audiometry screening is also required to comply with occupational health and safety regulations, ensuring that employers provide a safe working environment.

What are the Components of an Audiometric Testing Program?

A comprehensive audiometric testing program typically includes the following components:

Baseline Testing: Initial audiometric tests conducted when an employee starts work in a noisy environment to establish a reference point for future tests.

Periodic Testing: Regular audiometry testing to monitor any changes in hearing ability over time.

Follow-up Procedures: Additional tests and consultations if significant hearing loss is detected.

Hearing Conservation Training: Educating employees about the risks of workplace hearing loss and proper use of hearing protection.

Record Keeping: Maintaining detailed records of all audiometric tests and results for future reference and compliance purposes.

Can an Employee Refuse a Hearing Test?

Employees can refuse to undergo audiometric tests, but it is generally discouraged as these tests are vital for detecting early signs of hearing loss and ensuring workplace hearing safety. Employers should explain the importance of audiometry screening and how it benefits the employee’s health and safety. In some cases, refusal may need to be documented, and the employee might be required to sign a waiver acknowledging the potential risks of opting out of the audiometry testing program.

How Does an Employer Interpret Audiometry Results?

Employers should interpret audiometry results with the help of qualified audiologists or occupational health professionals. The results of audiometric tests indicate the employee’s hearing threshold levels, which are compared against baseline tests to identify any shifts in hearing ability. Significant changes in hearing thresholds may indicate noise-induced hearing loss, necessitating further action such as:

  • Re-evaluating Noise Control Measures: Ensuring that the workplace environment meets safety standards for noise levels.
  • Implementing Additional Hearing Protection: Providing or upgrading personal protective equipment (PPE) for affected employees.
  • Conducting Follow-up Audiometry Screening: To monitor the effectiveness of interventions and any further changes in hearing ability.
  • By adhering to these practices, employers can maintain a proactive approach to workplace audiometric testing, ensuring ongoing protection for their employees’ hearing health.
When should I complete a workplace noise assessment / noise survey?

We have designed a Noise Risk Assessment Template and Questionnaire to answer this very question, simply enter your email in box above and we will send it to you. Workplace noise testing is a process which almost every business should consider.

A comprehensive noise survey will provide your business with the information it needs to either control your employee hazardous occupational noise exposure or to rest easy knowing that your workplace noise levels are within legal requirements.

When should I re-do my Audiometric Testing?

If as an employer you issue hearing protection to your employees, then the WHS/OHS Act/Regulations in your state requires an employer to submitted its employees for Audiometric testing once every 2 years or more frequently if your employees are exposed to higher levels of hazardous noise.

We recommend regular workplace noise testing and Audiometric testing as the minor expense of the noise survey and Audiometric testing is completely insignificant in comparison to the cost of just 1 hearing loss Workers Compensation Claim.
