OSHA: Hearing Conservation Program – Industrial Audiometric Evaluation – Employer Requirements


As an employer, you are required by OSHA to conserve the hearing of your employees.


Those employees must be enrolled in the audiometric program at no cost.


A baseline audiogram should be established for each employee identified as being exposed to 85 dB or more to determine the level of hearing sensitivity.


This baseline will serve as the reference for all future audiometric evaluations to determine the degree of loss of hearing sensitivity.


Licensed or certified audiologists, otolaryngologists (ENTs), or other physicians must be accountable for all follow-up evaluations.


The healthcare professional in charge, must however, oversee the follow-up program and technicians, review audiograms, and complete referrals for additional testing when needed.


Referrals may be completed for additional audiological evaluation or for medical attention of any ear or hearing related pathology.
