A Sound Solution for Workplace Hearing Health


In the dynamic realm of industrial sectors, prolonged exposure to loud noise is a ubiquitous challenge faced by workers, particularly in areas such as factories, construction, and manufacturing. The toll on hearing health due to inconsistent protection or sudden triggers of harmful noise levels necessitates a comprehensive approach to address the impact on employees.

The NSW government, through Workcover, offers compensation for injury-related hearing loss sustained through the nature of work. Assessment under Workcover and compilation of documentation for processing the claim with both the insurance company as well as lawyers specialised in compensation claims, is a service we provide at Hills Audiology.

At Hills Audiology, the Castle Hill Audiology clinic , we recognise the significance of hearing health in the workplace and offer specialised services for Workcover assessments tailored to those affected by industrial hearing loss.

Understanding Workcover and Hearing Loss

The NSW government, through its Workcover program, extends support for individuals who experience injury-related hearing loss due to the nature of their work. Prolonged exposure to loud noise, a prevalent risk in industrial settings, is considered in these assessments. Hills Audiology provides a crucial service of assessing hearing loss under Workcover and compiling the necessary documentation for processing claims with insurance companies and legal entities specialising in compensation cases.

What are the different services included?

Our commitment extends beyond assessments; we facilitate the fitting of hearing aids when deemed appropriate. Furthermore, we provide maintenance and service for these hearing aids, ensuring ongoing support for those affected by industrial hearing loss. This comprehensive approach is designed not only to evaluate but also actively contribute to the well-being of individuals impacted by workplace-related hearing impairment.

Who is Eligible for Workcover?

The Workcover program is primarily aimed at individuals who suffer from industrial hearing loss accumulated over years of work in noisy environments. Mandated by the NSW Government, the program focuses on employee protection, including mandatory biannual hearing examinations in workplaces where noise levels exceed 85 dB. This proactive approach aligns with the commitment to identifying and addressing potential hearing issues early on.
