“For 20 years, The Speech & Hearing Center has made hearing testing easy for us. Their team is very flexible, easy to work with and accommodating.

Our Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliant services include:
Our Council for Accreditation in Occupation Hearing Conservation (CAOHC) certified technicians will provide on-site hearing testing in our mobile unit, meaning your employees never have to leave the jobsite. The testing trailer accommodates up to 6 employees at a time to minimize loss of work productivity. Onsite trailer-less testing is also available – whatever works for your business. We also offer onsite or in-office retesting, as needed.
Our director of audiology reviews all audiograms to determine if further testing is needed. Annual tests of each employee are compared to baseline hearing tests, and recommendations and referrals are made if a standard threshold shift (STS) occurs.
Work Relatedness Evaluations
For those with a detected hearing issue, we can provide in-house evaluations. This includes a comprehensive review of the employee’s noise exposure and medical history to determine whether the hearing loss is work related.
Noise Monitoring & Mapping
We’ll identify areas in your plant where the noise exceeds OSHA’s 85-decibel action level. This includes 8-hour time weighted average (TWA) surveys and noise mapping. At the conclusion, you’ll have a comprehensive report of the tested areas.
An integral part of any hearing conservation program, our training materials are informative, thorough and, best of all, meet OSHA requirements. Video training can be conducted during onsite testing or independently at your convenience. Written materials are also provided to compliment the video program.
The Speech and Hearing Center provides comprehensive reports, which strictly follow guidelines set by OSHA regulations for occupational noise exposure. Reports are provided in a timely fashion after each hearing testing session, so your records will always be up to date.
You can rely on our expertise. We’ll work with you to increase awareness of potential hearing safety issues that can be avoided by through preventative measures.
