We provide audiogram interpretation of all hearing test results (baseline, annual, retests, and follow-up). These exams may be obtained in-house or by our mobile truck. Appropriate recommendations are made by a board-certified audiologist. Our reports of the hearing test results are professional, comprehensive, easy to understand, and meet all related regulatory requirements. Recommendations concerning STS revision, medical referrals and OSHA or MSHA recordability are clearly identified. Priority is placed on timely responses with emphasis on clinical accuracy and appropriate regulatory compliance. Our reports meet record-keeping requirements and simplify the employee notification process. A yearly trend analysis and an evaluation of the program’s effectiveness are also available upon request.
