Audiometric - Hearing Test
FitTick provides on-site and in-house audiometric testing using either our purpose-built mobile testing booth, dedicated testing spaces in our local offices, or pop-up testing facilities which can be set up Australia-wide within 24 hours.
When is audiometric testing necessary:
Audiometric Testing is required on workers receiving a noise dose similar to that of an idling heavy truck at a distance of 1 metre during an 8 hour day.
Or a worker exposed to noise, similar to that of a mid to high calibre rifle at the workers ear, for short periods.
Audiometric audits must be conducted in a controllable test environment (e.g. a soundproof office, a testing trailer) to minimise/eliminate external disturbances on the test result (audiogram).
FitTick can provide businesses and organisations with valuable WHS insights by continiously screening their workforce and providing ongoing and reliable reports.
Each test conducted comes with a computer print out of the test results. A copy is given to the employee on completion of the audiometric
test and a copy is kept to send to his/her employer with a written explanation of the results.

The results of a hearing test that include details about the hearing capabilities of a worker or employee is called an audiogram. Therefore, an audiogram is only a “status quo” report.
