Importance of Pre Screening Employment Test in NSW
Exposure to loud noise in the workplace environment is a common cause of hearing loss in NSW. Noise levels of above 85dB averaged over the course of an 8-hour shift may lead to hearing loss, be it temporary or permanent. Excessive noise may also cause tinnitus
This hearing loss is typically an outcome of damage caused by prolonged exposure to high noise levels in the working environment and is known as noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). NIHL is a permanent hearing loss that can take a severe toll on your daily life.
Noises of extremely high magnitude (usually from heavy machinery or explosives) can cause instant damage to the hearing ability. This is known as acoustic trauma.
