Earplug Fit Testing
Best practice for any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is to ensure the right fit. Fit testing of ear plugs is mandatory on a number of sites and across industries. Australian Standards AS/NZ 1269.3:2005 Occupational Noise Management, Part 3 Hearing Protector Program, recognise this. The Fit Tick program builds and supports compliance.
HDP testing or Hearing Protection Device Testing to ensure that the ear plugs fit and really do provide the adequate seal in the wearers ear, is the key outcome of the Fit Tick Program.
- Each test conducted comes with a computer print out of the test results. On completion of the ear plug fit test a copy is sent to the employer so it can be kept on their employment file.
This card is sent out with completed reports to be given to the employee. The card shows the date of the test and the due date of the next test. These cards are registered on our site so in the event of loss or damage they can be replaced and because we have the records we can be your reminder of what tests are due and when.
