What customers are saying

We look forward to continuing our relationship with Examinetics.Nick Dent, Safety/HR
Another great experience year after year! We have been using Examinetics now for over 14 years at this location for our annual hearing testing. The convenience of having the van come to our location is perfect for a large employee-based location. The courteous expertise provided by the professional technician is nothing less than what should be expected each and every time. The Technician always goes above and beyond to set up quick get started. The technician also explains in detail each section of the results binder and the necessary steps to take moving forward. I would recommend Examinetics to any company seeking onsite audio testing.Jason Inman, Terminal Manager
Examinetics makes hearing conservation compliance easy. Their technicians are courteous, efficient, and very knowledgeable. I especially appreciate the level of detail and care taken when describing the results to our employees and final regulatory information to myself.Desiree Giroux, HSEQ Manager
This is our second year using Examinetics for our annual audio testing. Not only has the staff at Examinetics conducted themselves professionally, but they also took the time to explain the testing and why it is done. This year, due to construction at our facility, Jameson had to conduct the testing in the back of our building where it was not that easy to set up for the testing. He worked well with not only the Cardinal employees, but also the contractors that were on site. The fact that Jameson was able to connect with my employees throughout the day makes this annual process an easy choice. I will be using Examinetics every year moving forward.Scott Oliver, Safety Manager
Our company has been working with Examinetics the last few years for our hearing testing. I have nothing but positive things to say. I am always alerted ahead of time about the possible date of testing and it is confirmed that this works to my schedule. The Examinetics personnel are always on time (usually ahead of schedule) and are quick in setting up their stations. They also keep the testing time to the minimum in terms of decreasing my overall productivity. I will never consider using anyone else as the service has been above and beyond since the first test that has been completed at our facility. If I am ever asked for a recommendation, Examinetics is the only company I would recommend!Chuck Strobeck, Operations Manager
A service mindset and cheerful attitude from the tech on the Examinetics hearing truck helped things go seamlessly for the two weeks he was onsite at our facility for testing. Additionally, any question I had following up were promptly answered by a friendly audiologist via email or phone. We will continue to use Examinetics for our hearing conservation program, and have begun looking to incorporate other services they offer to help meet our company’s needs.Taylor Redding, Environment Health & Safety Coordinator
We have used Examinetics for over 25 years. They have been very professional in all areas. The mobile testing unit has always shown up on time, very clean and user friendly. When the testing is over, the instructor always makes sure we understand everything before he leaves. I would highly recommend Examinetics.Byron Cannon, General Manager
Examinetics made our annual hearing testing a snap. With their web portal, Hearing Test Case History forms were easy to download and print out for our employees. Our assigned technician was punctual and courteous. Before leaving, he provided us with a formal, well-presented binder including our test data. We will certainly use their services in the future.Jim Kain, Director of Safety, Quality and Training
Examinetics provided audiometric testing services for our organization and we were very impressed. Armando, the Examinetics employee assigned to our site, was very personable and well trained. He was very efficient and ensured that each employee understood the testing procedure. The mobile unit was very clean and well kept. At the conclusion of testing, we were provided a binder with comprehensive information regarding the testing results. We were highly impressed by the experience and will be using Examinetics in the future. Highly recommended.Jason Garcia, Industrial Hygienist
We have used Examinetics for several years for our annual hearing testing. They come to our location, communicate from start to finish very clearly their needs to set up and test, and are always available to answer questions along the way. Even after the process is complete, it is easy to get a response from the Examinetics team. After completion, we receive a very thorough report that we use for OSHA documentation. We will continue using Examinetics for our future hearing testing needs and I would highly recommend them to others.Sheryl Sheppard, Human Resources Manager
Noise monitoring is foundational to your hearing conservation program. In addition to our occupational hearing testing services, we offer noise surveys to measure the sound levels generated throughout your facilities. Noise surveys are conducted by certified occupational audiologists and industrial hygienists.
OSHA requires that “when there are significant changes in machinery or production processes that may result in increased noise levels, remonitoring must be conducted to determine whether additional employees need to be included in the hearing conservation program.” It is recommended to monitor annually or every other year to safeguard your hearing conservation program – the minimal cost of a noise survey pales in comparison to the cost of a single Workers Compensation Claim.Learn More
Hearing Testing FAQs
Employers must provide annual audiograms within 1 year of the baseline. It is important to test workers’ hearing annually to identify deterioration in their hearing ability as early as possible.
Examinetics Test, Train & Counsel service, or TTC, completes the OSHA mandatory follow-up required for employees in your hearing conservation program.
Being prepared can help your testing day go smoothly. Please be aware of the following ways make your testing day more efficient.
After your hearing tests are completed there will be a physical report provided. 24 hours after completed testing, results are available in our online XM customer portal.
A Standard Threshold Shift, or STS, is defined in the occupational noise exposure standard at 29 CFR 1910.95(g)(10)(i) as a change in hearing threshold, relative to the baseline audiogram for that employee, of an average of 10 decibels (dB) or more at 2000, 3000, and 4000 hertz (Hz) in one or both ears. https://www.osha.gov/laws-regs/regulations/standardnumber/1904/1904.10
A Work Relatedness Evaluation (WRE) helps delineate if hearing loss is due to a worker’s environment or external factors.
The OSHA Form 300 is used to document all workplace illnesses and injuries. Hearing loss caused or aggravated by workplace noise is a workplace illness when the following conditions apply:
You must have Wi-Fi to use Salux. A Wi-Fi Hotspot or internet stick are options that will work.
NIOSH provides a free sound level meter app which can be used to determine if your testing environment should be compliant. You can download the app from the app store on an iOS device. More information can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/noise/app.html.
Using the app, measure the ambient noise in your room. If the number in the LAeq [dB] field is under 45, your room should be ok for testing.
Measurements of 45dB or less do not guarantee that a room will be compliant when third octave band measurements are taken with a type 2 sound level meter. In addition, rooms with values greater than 45dB may be compliant when third octave band measurements are taken with a type 2 sound level meter. The LAeq measurement should simply be taken to generally determine if a room could be considered for testing. Final verification will have to be done with the Salux Calibration device prior to testing daily.
If you’re having trouble finding a room with an acceptable ambient noise level, move to a room without excessive HVAC noise and away from any nearby machinery. Conference rooms and guest offices are usually good choices.
Per 29 CFR 1910.95 (g), a microprocessor (computer driven/facilitated) audiometer does not need to be operated by a CAOHC certified technician. A technician who performs audiometric tests must be responsible to an audiologist, otolaryngologist, or physician. Since all the data will be coming through the Examinetics system for review, tests will be evaluated based on criteria established by our audiology staff.
Please note this exception: MSHA and the states of WA and OR do require CAOHC certification for any technician performing hearing tests
In our internal testing and in client use, the battery for the tablet and audiometer both lasted more than 8 hours of all-day testing.
