What is an Audiometric test?
The audiometric test is a painless, noninvasive hearing test which measures your ability to hear different sounds, pitches, or frequencies. This test will let you know how well your hearing function is performing. It will also test the balance issues, tone, and intensity of sound, and other related functions.
Why Audiometric Test is being performed?
If your job includes working in conditions that your hearing is at risk, you should know about the Audiometric Test Requirement and pass it. “OSHA obligates employers to make audiometric testing accessible free to all employees who experience high noisy circumstances level of 85 dB or above, measured as an 8-hour.”
Audiometric testing observes an employee’s hearing during the period. It also allows employers to educate employees about their audition and the necessity to protect it.
Although most commonly hearing loss is being caused by older age, but this problem can affect anyone at any age group.
The Audiometric Test is also being performed to determine how well you can hear. The test can also be done as a part of your routine hearing checkup.
Any damage to your ear or more exposure to loud sounds for a longer period can negatively affect your hearing function. So, if you are getting any trouble hearing people or other sounds, then you must think about to get through the proper examination. The Audiometric Test will let you know whether you are having a problem that needs to be treated, or it is nothing to be worried about.
