Employee hearing tests

We are lovely helpful types who take all the hassle out of workplace audiometry, from arranging the session through to a detailed report on what needs to be done, ensuring our on-site mobile audiometric testing services are a cost-effective way for companies to comply with the hearing test requirements of the Noise Regs. Simply tell us how many audiometric tests you want and we do the arrangements, set up our mobile unit anywhere on site, provide standards-compliant hearing tests in a managed environment, with an experienced audiometric testing technician. No additional charges for night shift or early morning testing, and all at a marvellously attractive price.

Why use us for your screening

Over 26 years of audiometric testing experience and an in-house member of the British Society of Audiology means we have the knowledge and experience to do the job properly. We have clients for whom we have conducted hearing tests personally for over a decade.

An on-site audiometry technician remains the only way to make sure the hearing tests are compliant with testing standards.

We design our own mobile audiometry units to ensure we offer fast, cost-efficient testing with accurate results, and minimal lost time for each employee.

Why do industrial audiometry

If you have employees who are routinely exposed to noise levels over the 85 dB(A) mark then the mandatory health screening requirements kick in. (The HSE’s sinister-sounding way of saying ‘a hearing test’).

The test is similar to the one people may have had at school except that with hearing tests done at work you don’t get a lollipop afterwards.

An audiometric test can detect developing losses well before an individual becomes aware of them. Audiometry acts as a check to ensure employee hearing is not deteriorating and that the safety procedures are working.

Where magic of the audiometric test happens

Audiometric testing process

We will create a schedule of appointments, and if you let us have the names we will add those in as well to save admin work.

We measure the noise in the booth, check the equipment, then test each attendee with both automatic and manual tests.

Each attendee gets their result immediately and explained to them in light of their own health history, covering work and non-work exposures, avoiding bland pre-prepared statements.

The employer gets a full report with all results and specific recommendations for all ‘fails’.
