THE BENEFITS OF HEARING TESTS
Noise is part of everyday life but loud noise can permanently damage your hearing.
Workplace hearing tests are important
Go4health offers a hearing test for employees exposed to noise levels in excess of 85 dB (A) to support compliance with the health and safety responsibilities of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.
