Have you planned your WorkCover hearing tests for this year?
Matt, and our mobile hearing test facility are now back on the road for the new year.
If you have started any new employees in the last few months, and they haven’t already had an audiometric test as part of their pre-employment medical assessment, then now is the time to book in their baseline WorkCover hearing test.
WorkCover hearing test legislation
Under the WorkCover 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.
You can learn more about WorkCover WA hearing tests from one our blogs last year What is a WorkCover hearing test?
