Pre-Employment Hearing Test & Report
Some employers may require new recruits to conduct a hearing test prior to start of employment. The hearing test ensures that the new worker meets specific safety requirements for the workplace, and it helps establish a baseline hearing measurement. The hearing test also helps determine the existence of any hearing loss prior to employment.
Occupations which have required hearing tests prior to start of employment include Aviation (Airline Pilots), Police Officers (Law Enforcement), Firefighter, Merchant Seaman, Truck and Bus Drivers, & RCMP.
House of Hearing Clinic offers pre-employment hearing tests and report writing for all interested parties. To learn more please contact the nearest clinic.
