What Our Customers Say

Work-Related Evaluations

Cassie Ford

Our team of full-time audiologists, led by Cassie Ford, M.A., CCC-A, CPS/A supervise all hearing testing services and hearing conservation programs. You can rely on our in-house professional review and threshold shift consultation.

Determining work-relatedness is important because an employee's hearing loss that has initially been flagged as a mathematically recordable standard threshold shift* (STS) may be an OSHA-recordable event. Work-relatedness determinations are also necessary when a worker has filed a workers compensation claim for hearing loss.

Our Work-Related Evaluation service helps companies comply with OSHA recordkeeping. To keep your OSHA Form 300 log accurate, our audiology team investigates confirmed hearing shifts and determines whether workplace noise caused or contributed to the hearing shift.

Our audiologists are considered licensed health care professionals** who may determine whether the detected hearing loss is work related for OSHA recordability purpose.

We have a comprehensive 7-step process that determines whether a hearing loss is related to workplace noise exposure. An employee’s noise exposure encompasses numerous sounds at various intensity levels besides those in the work environment – our expert analysis can help you evaluate whether or not a hearing shift is recordable.

* An STS is a worsening of at least 10 dB in average hearing thresholds for the frequencies of 2, 3, and 4 kHz in either ear compared to the most recent baseline.
**OSHA 1904.10(b)(6): “If a physician or other licensed health care professional determines the hearing loss is not work-related or has not been significantly aggravated by occupational noise exposure, you are not required to consider the case work-related or to record the case on the OSHA 300 log.”

Noise Surveys - Understanding Hazardous Noise in your Workplace

Noise monitoring is a foundation of 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, remonitorting 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. 

Our noise survey services include:

 
  • Noise dosimetry

  • Sound Level Meter (SLM) Measurements

  • Calibration

  • Noise survey reporting

  • Color-coded charts for easy interpretation

  • Explanation of federal regulation requirements 

  • Hearing protection assessment, as appropriate

  • Control recommendations for your hearing conservation program, as appropriate
