FAQs
 
1. Hearing Screening

Regular hearing checks help everyone to stay on top of their hearing health and pick up any changes.

What's involved?

Your workplace will be provided with a suite of kiosks or ipads that everyone will be able to access to complete their self-service hearing check. 

 

The hearing screening involves an online test provided by Triton Hearing. Each team member can use the online self-screen to see if their hearing sits within the normal listening range, or if a full diagnostic hearing assessment at a clinic is recommended.

How long does it take?

Each test takes about 5 minutes – but allow 10 mins when scheduling.

 

The hearing screening can be booked at the same time as your workshop day, but where possible we encourage you to have the kiosks or ipads in your organisation for at least a week to allow for all team members to complete the screening process. Scheduling of appointments is not required if you book the screening devices over a longer time.

What happens if a potential hearing loss is picked up?

If the screening result is: 'Refer.' We recommend a further hearing diagnosis. We also provide free vouchers for a full diagnostic with a participating clinic.

 

Health and Safety

Hand sanitizer and screen wipes should be available for staff to use when using the kiosks

Reporting on the results

Our reports provide an overview of how many staff had hearing within the normal range and how many received a 'Refer' result. The reports will not provide identifiable details about the individuals who participated.

 

All staff will need to use their work email address when they login to do the screening, as we use your organisation's email address to pull the data that is specific to your organisation.

3. Workshops
 

Hearing Health Workshop

NFDHH provide a 1-hour presentation on Hearing Health and introduce the Hearing Accredited Workplace Programme to your employees.

The presentation is delivered by a staff member at the National Foundation for the Deaf in conjunction with a Hearing Health Expert, such as an Audiologist from Triton Hearing.

 

The Audiologist provides valuable education to your team on their hearing health and the fascinating workings of the auditory system and technology to support hearing loss.

 

We also provide staff with an insight into available funding for hearing aids.
 

This workshop will help you to introduce HAWP to your team. Some companies opt to stream the presentation to their branches nationwide - so more employees have the opportunity to learn about it.
