Industrial hearing loss is something that affects many employees across a range of industries including manufacturing, building and construction, mining, live music and more. Whether you’re a technician, a machine operator, a driver or a labourer in any of the aforementioned industries, the likelihood is that you’ve probably worked in conditions where noise levels were above acceptable standard. Do it repeatedly and you can experience irreparable damage to your hearing. Industrial hearing loss might not be reversible, but you can take steps towards controlling it, starting with a hearing test available at no charge from Complaw. We provide free hearing tests across Melbourne, so if you work in an industry where you might be susceptible to industrial hearing loss, there’s no better time than now to be tested.
An industrial screening hearing test is quite simple and takes no more than 5-10 minutes to perform. It will indicate if a hearing loss exists and determine if it may be due to noise exposure.
We can perform these free hearing tests in various locations we have throughout Melbourne such as the CBD, Dandenong, Thomastown, Sunshine and Werribee.
Please check our “Locations” page to find details of each location (full address and respective map).
We perform these tests during the week and we offer limited Saturdays for the working population at our sites in Dandenong and Sunshine. Call us on (03) 8650-8500 to find out which location (Dandenong, Thomastown, Werribee, Sunshine, Taylors Lakes) and what date suits you best for a free hearing test.
Your hearing test will help to determine your eligibility for industrial hearing loss compensation. If you’re not entitled to compensation, you may still be eligible for subsidised hearing aids.
