Audio Metric Testing

Previous 1 / 1 Next

Under Factories and Machinery (Noise Exposure) Regulations 1989, stipulates that valid baseline for audio metric testing shall be established to every employee by their employer within twelve months from the date of the regulations takes effect or within six months from the day employee commences work.

Excessive noise can also cause physiological problems other than hearing. It can have an effect on emotions, produce irritability, increase blood pressure and heart rate, and produce nausea. These effects on the employee in a noisy environment are not well defined as an occupational illness, but may have an effect on the quality and efficiency of the work performed.
