Testing

Du-All Safety is available to conduct testing and assessment at the workplace to determine the severity of the hazards. Our services include noise surveys and audiometric testing to comply with your Hearing Conservation Program. We also provide medical clearance and fit testing to comply with the Respiratory Protection Program.

Noise Survey

Du-All Safety is available to come out with equipment and identify the noise levels of loud equipment and report on the findings. The report will include the noise level as compared to the OSHA TWA chart. The report will also identify the exposure group, the amount of time they can be exposed without hearing protection, recommend different types of hearing protection (ear plugs and ear muffs), identify the amount of time an employee can be exposed to the same noise levels using the recommended hearing protection.

Audiometric Testing (Hearing Testing)

29 CFR 1910.95(g); 8 CCR 5097. Du-All Safety provides hearing tests for businesses whose employees are tested annually as participants in a hearing conservation program. A mobile hearing van comes to you, so that we help control lost work time and better accommodate your company's production schedule and work shifts.
