Our technicians have successfully completed a CAOHC-approved hearing conservation course and are under the supervision of a license certified audiologist. All audiometric testing is conducted onsite our mobile testing units with minimal disruption to production. All testing and calibration procedures, as well as recordkeeping, are in compliance with the MIOSHA Occupational Noise Exposure standard . Upon completion of the testing, results are explained to the employee & they receive a copy of their audiogram. A complete Hearing Conservation Program report will be provided to the company.

Greater accuracy & comprehensive reporting
All testing is conducted with Benson Micro-processor Audiometers, Model CCA-200. Tests can be administered in 14 different languages. Software automatically marks errors, retests errors and questionable thresholds & generates real-time STS calculations with age correction. Software uses historical levels for improved accuracy & reduces testing time up to 40% thus providing the lowest possible impact on production.
Individuals with hearing loss constitute the single largest disability group in America. Approximately 30 million workers are exposed to noise levels that are potentially hazardous to their hearing. Noise-induced hearing loss is a significant cause of occupational and recreational disability. Fortunately noise-induced
hearing loss can be reduced through the application of Hearing Conservation Programs. A successful program benefits both the company and employees. Employees are spared disabling hearing impairments, and evidence suggests that they may experience less fatigue and generally better health. Ultimately, the company benefits from reduced medical expenses and worker compensation insurance. In some cases there may be improved morale and work efficiency.
The effects of excessive noise exposure on communication & performance may include:
*Increased blood pressure & pulse rate
*Loss of sleep
*Adverse social behavior
