Hearing Conservation Program

Comprehensive hearing conservation services:

  • Onsite hearing testing services with employee training, immediate employee feedback, and comprehensive Management Report of the results.
  • Professional supervision of audiometric testing programs conducted in-house by companies and clinics. This service includes overseeing annual audiograms, revising baseline audiograms, and periodic Management Reports identifying recordable/reportable threshold shifts for both OSHA and MSHA, etc.
  • Health-Metrics’ Management Report is provided in a timely fashion for all audiometric data obtained either mobily or through a client’s in-house program. Each report includes:
    • Statistical Analysis - quantifies the number of baseline and annual tests, medical referrals, STS employees, and recordable/reportable STS employees.
    • Test Schedule List - an alpha list of employees tested within a session or specific time-period.
    • Medical Referral - a list of those employees who were recommended for additional medical evaluation (by their own physician) based on hearing test data or historical comments.
    • STS Summary - a list of those employees who exhibit an age-corrected STS.
    • Recordable Summary - a list of those employees who are potentially recordable on the OSHA Log 300 or comparable MSHA forms.
    • If the tests were generated on one of our mobile units documentation is provided for the annual exhaustive and daily calibration of the audiometers as well as booth sound levels during testing.
    • Additional, specialized individual employee and summary reports as appropriate.
  • A qualified audiologist is available for consultation whenever questions arise regarding test results or any other aspect of the hearing conservation program.
  • Each employee receives an employee notification letter noting his current and baseline test results and any need for medical referral when warranted.
  • Recommendations can be made for the appropriate selection of hearing protection devices based on the employee’s exposure levels.
  • Small or large group training sessions meeting OSHA and MSHA requirements are available, often to each group being tested in one of our mobile units immediately prior to the actual testing.
  • Assistance in obtaining comprehensive noise surveys at your facility to document employee noise exposures.
