CSA Z107.6 Audiometric Testing for use in Hearing Loss Prevention Programs: A new title for a new edition
The most recent addition to the Canadian Standards Association’s (CSA) Occupational Hearing Conservation Technical Committee’s fleet of standards is a long-awaited second edition of CSA Z107.6, Audiometric Testing for use in Hearing Loss Prevention Programs. This Standard focuses on quantifying hearing loss as a means of early detection of possible damage from hazardous noise exposure and is directed to organizations and service providers responsible for conducting audiometric tests as part of a Hearing Loss Prevention Program (HLPP). The new edition is intended to be used in conjunction with CSA Z1007, Management of Hearing Loss Prevention, and incorporates several amendments and additions to the original 1990 edition. The 2016 edition now includes: mobile audiometric test facility requirements; an expanded section on audiometric technician training requirements; and guidance to the technician on classifying test results, advising the tested individual about their test results and providing reports to the Hearing Loss Prevention Program Administrator for use within an HLPP.
