Safety Wise Ltd. is excited to add Audiometric Testing to our services. At Safety Wise Ltd. we believe that it is important to protect the health & safety of our work force. Hearing loss due to noise exposure is a common disorder. The first step to controlling hearing loss is to provide hearing protection to our employees as part of a comprehensive hearing conservation program.
Completing a baseline audiogram pre-employment and regular audiograms is another important part of your companies plan. A baseline audiogram will allow companies to identify any hearing loss pre-employment. Regular audiograms will allow early detection of noise related loss and should be completed as per Saskatchewan Regulation at least every 24 months. At Safety Wise we recommend every 12 months to have the best chance for early detection of hearing loss due to noise.
We will be working Jacquie Mvula owner and Audiologist at Sun Country Hearing Ltd. to provide your company and employees with hearing services.
These services will include;
Mobile Audiometric testing
Custom hearing protection.
Safety Wise Ltd will be launching services in noise surveying in the New Year!!
What is Audiometric Testing?
Audiometric testing measures the ability to hear sounds using an audiometer. During testing, pure tones are presented through headphones. The test determines the frequency and intensity, necessary for the subject to hear each tone.
What is an Audiometer?
An audiometer is a machine used for evaluating hearing acuity. They usually consist of an embedded hardware unit connected to a pair of headphones and a test subject feedback button, sometimes controlled by a standard PC.
