Actsafe provides free hearing testing to motion picture and performing arts workers in occupations deemed as ‘at risk’ of a hearing injury. Any other crew members tested are the responsibility of the production.
Section 7.8 (1) of the Occupational Health & Safety Regulation states that employers must give workers exposed to noise that exceeds noise exposure limits, hearing test at least once every 12 months.
As our industries are highly mobile, Actsafe coordinates an industry-wide program and through our supplier, Reliable Mobile Hearing, maintains a database of tested workers and results. Reliable Mobile Hearing can be contacted at 604 596 8414.
