New hearing check kiosk
Published: 29 April, 2015
ARCO says hearing damage caused by exposure to noise at work is irreversible and can have a devastating impact on lives. In order to help businesses identify and prevent employee hearing loss, Arco, a leading UK safety company, has developed, in conjunction with CluisTROM Ltd, its own Hearing Check Kiosk.
Comprising of a stand, software, touch screen tablet and headset, the entire hearing surveillance package allows for comprehensive hearing tests to be undertaken by employees on site.
Lasting between 10-15 minutes, Arco’s Hearing Check Screening can quickly and effectively monitor for tonal hearing loss by playing sounds at different frequencies to each ear. Frequencies tested range from 250, 500, 1000, 4000 and 6000 Hz. The results are immediate and are illustrated by an in-depth audiogram that identifies an employees hearing thresholds. The full results are then securely stored on file and can be sent direct to two separate email addresses.
