Comply & Protect Your Employees’ Hearing
Noise, or unwanted sound, is one of the most pervasive and preventable occupational health problems. Exposure to high levels of noise causes hearing loss and may increase a worker’s susceptibility to other problems such as physical and psychological disorders, interference with speech and communication, and disruption of job performance associated with excessive noise intensities.
WorkCare’s® hearing conservation and audiometric testing program complies with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Occupational Noise Exposure standard 29 CFR 1910.95 and focuses on compliance with federal and state regulations.
A board-certified occupational health physician adhering to OSHA’s required sections supervises our services:
- Noise monitoring, 29 CFR 1910.95(d)(e)(f)
- Audiometric testing 29 CFR 1910.95(g)(h)
- Hearing protectors, 29 CFR 1910.95(i)(j)
- Education and training, 29 CFR 1910.95(k)(1)
- Recordkeeping, 29 CFR 1910.95(m)
In overseeing the examination process, our dedicated physicians will become familiar with all job duties for employees participating in the hearing conservation program. In some cases, the duties will be referenced in conjunction with each employee exam with specific emphasis on essential functions.
WorkCare® remains committed to the health and well-being of the men and women who contribute to your bottom line every day.
