At POIRIERCASTRO HSE, we take your hearing conservation program very seriously and offer the most comprehensive services in the industry.
We begin by assessing your workplace for noise and providing you with a detailed report outlining your employee exposure to noise while performing their daily tasks. This helps you to evaluate the appropriate hearing protection that will reduce the risk of noise induced hearing loss.
If you are unsure of what hearing protection to choose, we can provide your staff with custom molded ear plugs that guarantee a perfect fit each and every time while providing maximum protection.
In order to then quantify the effectiveness of your hearing conservation program, we can conduct audiometric hearing testing to ensure that your employees hearing is being maintained in good health.
If there is a significant hearing loss, our Hearing Instrument Specialist can suggest options for treatment and refer if necessary.
AUDIOMETRIC HEARING TESTING is conducted by our Hearing Instrument Specialists or Certified Audiometric Technicians onsite in our mobile testing trailer or van that can accommodate 2-4 clients every 15 minutes. Following the testing, counselling regarding the test is provided as well as a copy of the test record in the form of a card.
A summary of all the results are also provided to the company Designated Employee Representative(DER) for the purposes of managing the hearing conservation program.
For more information regarding audiometric hearing tests, noise exposure assessments or custom molded ear plugs, please call +1 587-597-8378.
