State OHS / WHS Regulations

Why we do Onsite hearing tests
Our main objective is to assist industry comply with the Occupational Health and Safety / Workplace Health & Safety state Regulations. Our qualified staff are trained to handle all operational activities on the day of the testing to minimise any disruption to the normal work day routine. We also can assess your workplace to identify noise levels that exceed the current regulation standards. Having hearing tests conducted at your work place helps you to minimise interruption to your daily work.
Our Onsite hearing tests
As part of our service we will travel to your company premises to carry out the Audiometric Hearing Tests. Our normal schedule throughout the year takes us all over Victoria, NSW and areas in South Australia. We include as part of our service a complete summary of test results, an analysis of employees tests with previous results and all relevant documentation for the legal Authorities. Educational material will also be provided to each employee about hearing loss.
Regular 2 yearly onsite Audiometric hearing tests
We understand that you have many things to think about while running your business so as a courtesy we will contact you when your re-testing is due. We can manage the process end to end.
Our Hearing test reports
Our report will include a comparison with the previous test if available, and highlight any employees that have a significant shift in their hearing. We can also highlight any employees with significant hearing loss and discuss the companies potential liability in regard to hearing loss claims. A soft copy of the report is also available if required.
