For every Hearing Conservation Program, federal noise regulations require that an audiologist or physician be assigned as the program’s “professional supervisor“. (link to Scope of Practice). According to OSHA regulations, the professional supervior is responsible for:
Supervising the hearing testing portion of the Hearing Conservation Program.
Conducting professional review of all audiograms.
Determining if the identified hearing loss (Standard Threshold Shift) is work-related.
Overseeing the follow-up of work-related hearing loss.
Managing the program’s audiometric database.
We provide audiogram interpretation of all hearing test results (baseline, annual, retests, and follow-up). These exams may be obtained in-house or by our mobile van. Appropriate recommendations are made by a board certified audiologist with over 40 years of occupational hearing conservation experience. Our reports of the hearing test results are professional, comprehensive, easy to understand and meet all related regulatory requirements. Recommendations concerning STS revision, medical referrals and OSHA or MSHA recordability are clearly identified. Priority is placed on timely responses with emphasis on clinical accuracy and appropriate regulatory compliance. Our reports meet recordkeeping requirements and simplify the employee notification process. A yearly trend analysis and an evaluation of the program’s effectiveness are also available.
