NHCA Best Practices for Safely Conducting Hearing Testing During COVID-19 Pandemic

May 13, 2020 Academy News

Academy representative to the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) Richard Danielson, PhD, shares the recently published NHCA guideline, Best Practices Guidelines for Safely Conducting Hearing Testing During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

This best practices document offers guidelines that are applicable to busy hearing conservation practices that use multiple test stations within an audiometric booth, as well as those using single-person booths. The document was prepared by NHCA, with participation of the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation and several knowledgeable occupational medicine specialists, to minimize the risk of SARS CoV-2 infection through person-to-person spread within occupational health clinics, company in-house testing, and mobile test environments.

Review the NHCA Best Practices Guideline.
