Pre-Employment Hearing Tests
It is common practice for employers to request new workers have a hearing check prior to commencing employment. There are a number of reasons why pre-employment hearing tests are required, including:
- ensuring the new workers’ hearing is at a sufficient level to meet any specific safety requirements in the workplace,
- establishing a workers level of hearing at the commencement of employment for the purposes of hearing monitoring and conservation
- determining any pre-existing hearing loss
Staten Island Hearing and Balance Center offers pre-employment hearing tests of workers entering new employment at the request of the employer or the worker.
