Hearing Conservation & Protection
Hearing tests are required for companies across many industry types and are necessitated when a business of any kind has noise levels exceeding the OSHA action level of 85dBA over an eight-hour time-weighted average (TWA).
The onsite hearing testing program from AnyPlace Audiology is an integral part of your hearing conservation program and keeping your business in compliance with OSHA regulations.
From sound level surveys conducted with dosimeters to determine the noise levels of a facility, to audiometric tests for employees and record maintenance and documentation, AnyPlace Audiology manages every aspect of a hearing conservation program.
Companies whose environment exceeds the action level must participate in an OSHA hearing conservation program. A hearing conservation program requires annual audiometric testing, hearing conservation training, and record-keeping. Training must be annual and address the proper use of hearing protection devices and the effect of noise on a person’s hearing.
Companies are also required to keep accurate records to document standard threshold shifts (STS), recordable shifts, and potential hearing loss. These must also be tracked on a company’s OSHA 300 log.
AnyPlace Audiology provides the full range of OSHA-required testing and measurement. From sound level surveys conducted with dosimeters to determine the noise levels of a facility, to audiometric tests for employees and record maintenance and documentation.
