We are a Perth based provider of mobile hearing testing services. Experienced with WA regulations in all industries, including the new WHS Act 2020, you will value our personal, informed service. Our Noise Officers and Audiometric Officers are all approved by WorkCover WA.
Onsite audiometric testing
Your onsite audiometric testing programs can include WorkCover baseline hearing tests, subsequent air conduction tests and full audiological testing where required.
Our online booking system keeps the organisation easy!
Workplace hearing tests
Each hearing test takes only 10 minutes per person. We tailor our testing to cover all shifts and multiple sites, as required. Onsite hearing testing is more cost effective and less disruptive to employee time off the job.
Ear plug fit testing can be included to improve compliance and correct use of PPE.
How often is hearing testing required under the new Regs?
The new WA Regulations, which are effective from March 31st 2022, state the following:
WHS Act 2020 and Regulations place a duty on the person running a business to provide audiometric testing for workers who use personal hearing protection:
(a) within 3 months of the worker commencing the work; and
(b) in any event, at least every 2 years
Please note, there is now a penalty for this subregulation:
(a) for an individual, a fine of $7 000;
(b) for a body corporate, a fine of $35 000.
Under the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981, all workers employed in a prescribed workplace for the first time must have a baseline hearing test within 12 months of starting employment.
This is regardless of whether the worker is wearing hearing protection. It is compulsory for the employer to arrange and pay for baseline hearing tests for all workers in prescribed “noisy” workplaces.
Regular hearing testing can also help you avoid potential workers compensation claims for Noise Induced Hearing Loss.

We conduct regional road trips with our WorkCover hearing test truck twice per year.

Our accredited Noise Officer’s can also conduct a WorkSafe or DMP Noise Survey to help you identify workers who require audiometric tests, the personal hearing protection they should be using and the noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) hazards in their environment that require risk management.
