Audiometric testing monitors an employee’s hearing over time. It also provides an opportunity for employers to educate employees about their hearing and the need to protect it. You must establish and maintain an audiometric testing program.
The important elements of the program include baseline audiograms, annual audiograms, training, and followup procedures. You must make audiometric testing available at no cost to all employees who are exposed to an action level of 85 dB or above, measured as an 8-hour time weighted average.
