Hearing Tests in the UK
Hearing loss is a common work-related health issue caused by working in a loud environment, and it is the responsibility of the employer to protect their staff and prevent lasting hearing issues. Here at Healthier Workforce, we can provide professional hearing tests for your employees in order to detect any hearing loss and recommend necessary solutions. We carefully choose partners that are Safe, Effective, Quality Occupational Health Service (SEQOHS) accredited, to make sure our nationwide network of practitioners carry out reliable testing.
Audiometry is often part of ongoing health surveillance for businesses, as The Control of Noise at Work regulations require businesses with certain noise levels to protect employees’ health. Regular hearing check-ups are essential for employees working in these noise intensive environments, as we use the tests to determine if individuals are using PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) appropriately, and if more action needs to be taken to protect them.
