ABOUT EMPLOYMENT HEARING TESTS
Pre-Employment Hearing Tests in BC
While fairly uncommon for most jobs, some employers may require new recruits and employees to get a hearing test before starting their new position.
As a method of ensuring that each employee meets specific hearing safety requirements, employment hearing tests set a baseline for future expectations and helps determine possible hearing loss prior to employment or in some cases, as a cause of employment.
Typically, these employment hearing tests will be required in positions which relate to public safety, including but not limited to:
- Law Enforcement
- First Responders and Fire Fighters
- Public Transportation
- Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers
