Revolutionary Hearing Tests at Work

About Us

“We created WorkScreen because traditional hearing tests are not practicable for many organisations today”

About Workscreen

WorkScreen has been created by a small team of hearing industry veterans concerned that too many workers at risk from undiagnosed hearing loss and from Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) were not getting hearing tests – even when regulations say they should​.

Compliance rates for hearing tests in certain industries (e.g hospitality) and in certain worker cohorts (e.g. contractors) is thought to be particularly poor.

This is partly because traditional occupational hearing test methods and systems were conceived to address the needs of a more heavily industrialised world and not for today’s society. In effect, traditional hearing tests are not practicable for many organisations today. WorkScreen was created to combine the latest technology with real world expertise and experience to provide a practical, safe and effective solution to providing surveillance audiometry for today’s organisations without the traditional hassle.

Taking into account our mission, a key goal of WorkScreen is to make hearing tests more accessible at work.
