General

This Standard specifies requirements for equipment and procedures for audiometric testing in the workplace. It is applicable to organizations, service providers, and all institutions involved in the provision of audiometric testing to individuals who are exposed to hazardous noise.

Subjects not addressed

The following subjects are not addressed in this Standard:

a) hearing tests used to determine eligibility for compensation claims or benefits;

b) diagnostic tests such as those used for tinnitus, clinical assessments, hearing aid fittings, or to determine fitness for duty;

c) otoacoustic emissions; and d) extended high-frequency testing.

Relation to other Standards

This Standard complements other CSA Group hearing loss prevention standards (see Figure 2), as follows:

a) Z1007 for guidance to the person(s) responsible for implementing and managing a hearing loss prevention program (HLPP);

b) Z94.2 for hearing protection; c) Z107.56 for measurement of occupational noise exposure; and

d) Z107.58 for noise emission declarations for machinery.

Terminology

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
