  • Audiometric/Hearing Conservation Read MoreRead Less

We offer baseline audiometric testing, in addition to an annual hearing program for employers who are required by OHSA to be involved in a hearing conservation program. Our technicians are CAOCH certified and our calibrated equipment includes a sound booth and portable audio testing equipment.

Pre-placement Testing — It is a good idea to have a baseline hearing test done on employees who may be working in a noisy environment or for jobs that rely on specific hearing capabilities. Having a baseline test before an employee starts helps to determine if any later hearing loss may have been caused by work exposure.

Annual Testing — OSHA noise standard number 29 CFR 1910.95 requires companies to establish a hearing conservation program for employees with exposure over the PEL limits. Hudson Physicians can provide the required testing, supervision and follow up to meet these guidelines and help protect your employees’ hearing. We offer these services both at our facility or on-site.
