In industry, we offer a hearing screening service via our mobile unit.
Several risks are associated with exposure to noise. Also, many health impacts result from this. According to CSA Z1007:1, hearing screening for each worker must be conducted annually.
A hearing screening also allows companies to reduce their potential health and safety costs since they are able to identify workers at risk. Thus, it is possible to make changes to better equip and protect certain workers. It is also possible to assess the effectiveness of workers' hearing protection.
Employers must PROTECT themselves when hiring new employees, because exposure to excessive noise in former positions may have led to OCCUPATIONAL INJURY. The same is true when workers leave their jobs; they must guard against any FUTURE LEGAL ACTION, whether they are hired by a new employer or retired. In addition, employers must determine over time whether or not their workers are suffering from noise-induced hearing damage on a regular basis.
If a hearing screening is found to be failed, a full audiological evaluation will be recommended.
