Record Keeping

Record Keeping

The Speech & Hearing Center utilizes the Windows version of Hear\Trak, proven to be the leader in record keeping, which strictly follows the guidelines set by OSHA regulations (Standards-29 CFR) for occupational noise exposure.

OSHA regulations state, "Audiometer calibration shall be checked acoustically, at least annually." Each booth audiometer goes through a full calibration annually, and records of results are kept on the testing unit for inspection.

Daily audiometer calibrations are performed by Quest Bio-Acoustic Simulators and an Octave Band Monitoring System test and monitor sound attenuation to meet ANSI standards for sound booths. OSHA regulations state, "Rooms used for audiometric testing shall not have background sound pressure levels exceeding requirements of American National Standard Specification for Sound Level Meters." The Octave Band System monitors booth sound attenuation during the testing process to assure compliance with ANSI Standards.
