Staying compliant with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations can be challenging for some businesses. Many companies and job sites are required to have a hearing conservation program, and the process can seem daunting and disruptive. There is a way to simplify the process and get the help you need – using a mobile hearing testing service to provide testing for your employees without leaving the workplace.
There are many advantages to having a team of qualified health professionals come to your site. The main reason is the efficiency of having testing services come to you, and also the cost benefit you can realize instead of sending your employees to a clinic.
Convenient and Efficient
Remaining compliant with OSHA does not have to be complicated. Having a mobile service bring the testing equipment to your job site allows for employees to get quickly tested, and back to work sooner. This way the company can save time and money, in addition to many other benefits:
- Ease of scheduling
- Eliminates travel offsite
- Minimal loss of production time
- Turnkey solution for testing and training associated with regulations
It is your duty as an employer to keep workers protected from immediate work-related hearing issues, but it is also important to protect their long-term health by taking preventative measures. A mobile hearing testing unit will have a team of professionals behind them that can analyze the tests and determine any problems that could be developing with employee hearing. These professionals are specially trained to support your hearing conservation program needs.
Trained in OSHA’s Regulations
A mobile hearing testing partner can help you navigate the OSHA standard on occupational noise exposure. They can walk you through testing, training, counseling and more. The technicians and audiologists are well versed in the regulations that OSHA has in place. You can rely on their expertise to guide you through everything you need to know to stay compliant.
Mobile testing units are fully equipped to facilitate prompt tests, fast and accurate analysis of the data, then review the tests with your employees. At the end of your service visit, your technician will review the results for your entire job site. And if your mobile partner has a client portal, all your data is stored for easy access.
Stay Compliant Every Time
Mobile hearing testing units should not be a one-time solution. For the best results you should continue to utilize the service year after year. This way there is a better scheduling cadence and untested employees will not slip through the cracks. The prior records of your employees will be available to research and compare in order to quickly detect any changes or hearing shifts. Once you see for yourself how easy the whole process can be, you will wonder what took you so long to try it in the first place.
