Do my employees need a hearing test?

Testing employee’s hearing levels at regular intervals is a legal requirement if their workplace is a noisy environment which requires them to wear hearing protection.

Not only is testing the hearing of your workforce important to you to stay compliant with the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) but this is also a good time to talk to individuals if they are suffering from chronic hearing conditions such as NIHL  (Noise Induced Hearing Loss) which can have a real negative impact on their life.  Even with the introduction of hearing protection in the workplace, it is still advisable that employers perform regular hearing tests.
