We are a Perth based provider of mobile audiometric testing services. Experienced with WA regulations in all industries, including the new WHS Act 2020, you will value our personal, informed service.

We have been conducting mobile hearing testing in Perth and regional WA, including FIFO programs, for over 20 years. Our Noise Officers and Audiometric Officers are all approved by WorkCover WA.

Onsite audiometric testing, Ear plug fit testing and Noise Surveys…we do it all to help you manage the hazard of noise at your workplace.

How often is audiometric testing required under the new WA Regs?

From 31 March 2024, the WHS Regulations impose a duty on PCBUs to conduct audiometric testing (of a specific type) in relation to workers who are frequently required to use personal protective equipment to protect them from the risk of hearing loss associated with noise that exceeds the exposure standard. The new WA Regulations (reg 58) 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

See more in the recently updated WorkSafe WA Code of Practice Managing Noise and Preventing Hearing Loss at Work.

Workplace hearing tests

Each audiometric 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.

FIFO audiometric testing and health surveillance

As well as from our mobile testing facilities, Work Health Professionals also has years of experience in providing FIFO onsite audiometric testing and health surveillance services for remote locations and mine sites in WA.

Mobile facilities for hire

As well as our audiometric testing truck, Work Health Professionals also have a hearing testing caravan, with WorkCover accredited hearing test booth, that is available for hire. 

This is ideal for large groups and can include additional services such as:

Noise Surveys

Our accredited Noise Officer’s can also conduct a WorkSafe 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.
