Audiometry testing is required in any working environment where employees have exposure to noise levels that require a hearing protector.
It is important to adhere to the legislative requirement of providing your employees with a health surveillance program. KINNECT’s program which includes baseline and periodic audiometry testing will ensure that you are meeting your legislative requirements. The program will also identify employees who may have occupational noise induced hearing loss to ensure early intervention and treatment is provided.
KINNECT provides a turn key system to implementing and managing your ongoing health surveillance requirements. This system is called Carelever.
Our cloud based health surveillance software makes managing your health surveillance program a breeze. Using Carelever you are able to:
- Book a pure tone audiometry for an employee anywhere in Australia or New Zealand
- Store the audiometry test data for each employee
- Compare the latest audiometry test results against previous test or baseline test
- Identify employees who are showing a shift in hearing and are at increased risk of occupational induced hearing loss
- Notification for the next periodic audiometry test (e.g. 6 months, 12 months or 2 years)
Clinic Based Audiometry Testing
KINNECT offer an audiometric testing service that is conducted through our clinics or affiliate medical centres in Australia and New Zealand.
Onsite Audiometry Testing
KINNECT’s onsite audiometric testing can be conducted conveniently at times that suit your organisation. Please note that KINNECT does not offer mobile audiometric testing; we conduct testing in a quiet environment with specialised equipment.
If employees are required to use hearing protection to protect against noise exposure, then you have obligations under WHS regulations to:
- Ensure that a worker is not exposed to noise that exceeds the exposure standard for noise;
- Provide audiometric testing to monitor employee hearing levels1.
Carelever is our custom built cloud based software. Over the years, Carelever has been developed into an online platform that helps employers to manage their Occupational Health needs. If you are looking to implement a health surveillance program for your employees exposed to noise, then Carelever is your solution. Our clients use Carelever to book their health surveillance tests and manage the health data that comes with each test. Carelever will store each employees health data and allows for comparison of previous test data. This process ensures ongoing monitoring of your employee’s health status and that you are meeting your health and safety obligations.
