Audiometric Testing

Audiometric testing is most commonly used in safety-sensitive industries when an employee is exposed to loud noises in which hearing loss or impairment could occur. According to OSHA’s hearing conservation program, employers must monitor noise exposure levels for those exposed to noise at or above 85 decibels (dB) averaged over 8 working hours, or an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA). It’s imperative that employers with employees in such working conditions monitor their hearing over time to ensure their safety and implement an audiometric testing program in the workplace.
