Physicians Quality Care will come to your facility with our state-of-the-art mobile unit. With no extra on-site setup fee, we can take care of your OSHA-required hearing-conservation training and test 10 people at a time every 20 minutes.
All tests are conducted by CAOHC-certified Occupational Hearing Conservationists, supervised by a medical doctor and use the top-of-the-line Benson audiometer. Our calibrated sound-level meter assures that ambient noise will not interfere with your hearing tests.
We can even do retests, make-up tests and work-related reviews if needed. We are happy to schedule any shifts you need tested, any time of day.
Most companies are noisy work environments. As an employer, you are required to assess your employees’ hearing annually and educate them in hearing conservation. Our team of CAOHC-certified hearing conservationists can help you safeguard your employees’ hearing and comply with all OSHA 29 CFR 1910.95 regulations.
After setting up our 10-person mobile audiometry unit on-site, we will obtain a medical and “noise” history from each employee.At the same time, at your discretion, we will instruct them in hearing conservation techniques as required by law.
We will then inspect the ear canals and drums for abnormalities and/or wax obstruction – anything that might decrease their hearing – then seat them in our mobile testing unit for the 10-minute test.
Our audiometer is computer-controlled and exceeds all ANSI S3.6-1989 requirements. Instructions can be given in any of 11 different languages, assuring that even your non-English-proficient workers will receive an accurate test. Upon completion of all testing, the data is reviewed, adjusted for age (as required), compared against baseline and finalized.
All employees with a presumptive STS are identified and reports are returned to your designated representative, usually within 72 hours. Data is provided in PDF form for easy assimilation into your company’s files. In addition, we provide the required employee notification letters at no additional charge, relieving you of that regulatory burden.
Because we are local, repeat testing for those with a presumptive STS can be done in our office at the employee’s convenience. We also understand that your employees’ time off the clock affects your bottom line, that’s why – unlike out-of-state companies who tell YOU when they can do your testing, Physicians Quality Care OCCMed is available 24/7. That means your third-shift employees can be tested on third shift, reducing employee disruption and lessening downtime.
