What is audiometric testing?

Audiometric testing is designed to monitor the worker’s hearing over time. Employers are required to provide baseline audiograms and annual audiograms to all employees with an 8-hour time weighted average (TWA). A licensed audiologist, otolaryngologist, or other physician must oversee the program. An audiologist is a professional who is uniquely qualified to provide comprehensive services related to the prevention of hearing loss.

What monitoring is required?

Employers are required to monitor any worker with exposure to sound levels of 85 dBA or greater averaged over an 8-hour workday (TWA). The sound level measurements are required to include all continuous, intermittent, and impulse noises (80dB-130dB).

All employees enrolled in a hearing conservation program will be trained within 30 days of enrollment in the program; and every 12 months thereafter. The training will include:

  • Effects of noise on hearing.
  • Purpose and value of wearing hearing protectors.
  • Various types of hearing protectors offered and the care, fitting and use of each type.
  • Advantages and disadvantages of the hearing protectors offered.
  • Purpose and value of audiometric testing and a summary of the procedures.

What records are employers required to keep following the testing?

  • Employers are required to keep noise exposure measurements for 2 years.
