Workplace Hearing Tests

At Bishopdale Hearing, we provide Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and workplace hearing tests to help people monitor their hearing health and manage workplace noise risks. From initial pre-employment hearing assessments to routine annual screenings and mandatory audiometry examinations, we can provide the services you need to maintain a safe working environment.

How Long Do Our Hearing Assessments Take?

Our audiologists are committed to providing comprehensive CAA and workplace hearing tests with as little interruption as possible to your daily working routine. We can complete your hearing assessment within 30 minutes and will provide the results immediately afterwards so you can continue your day with peace of mind and minimal disruption.

Where Do Our Workplace Hearing Tests Take Place? 

If you require multiple hearing tests for your employees, our audiologists may be able to complete these tests at your workplace for your convenience. Otherwise, all our workplace hearing tests can easily be carried out at our Bishopdale clinic. Contact us today for more information about our group hearing tests and find out if you’re eligible for a workplace visit.

Who Is Entitled to a Workplace Hearing Test?

Workers who are exposed to excessive noise levels are entitled to receive workplace hearing assessments arranged by their employer. In New Zealand, “excessive noise” in the workplace is determined as noise levels that either:

  • Exceed an average of 85 decibels over an 8-hour period

  • Exceed the maximum allowable level of 140 decibels at any given time

Preparing for a CAA Hearing Test

The CAA Medical Certification regulations state that anyone who wishes to become a licensed pilot or air traffic controller must have a medical certificate. To obtain this medical certificate, you will be required to undergo a general medical examination, which includes an audiometry examination to assess your hearing capabilities.

To ensure our CAA hearing assessments are carried out in accordance with all industry standards, you will need to bring one of the following forms of identification to your appointment: 

  • A current New Zealand passport

  • A current New Zealand driver's licence

  • An equivalent form of photo ID deemed acceptable by the Director of Civil Aviation

You will also need to bring along your Audiometry Report so we can fill out the required fields and witness your signature on the report as the applicant. If you don’t have this form, we have copies in the clinic we can fill out for you.
