Hearing Fit-Testing
SDI Custom Earplugs

On March 31, 2023, Alberta’s government changed parts of the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Code. One significant change involves noise exposure which covers requirements for protecting workers from exposure to occupational noise hazards.

This change means employers must ensure workers are fit-tested for the hearing protection devices (HPDs) they use and wear.

There are two methods for hearing protection fit-testing: qualitative and quantitative.

Contact the SDI Group to support your business with Hearing Protection Fit-Testing.

Hearing Fit-Testing

Qualitative Fit-Test

This test involves the use of a pass or fail screening to decide if an employee’s hearing protection is working effectively. It relies on the person’s ability to detect a specific sound through hearing protection.

Quantitative Fit-Test

This test involves the use of specialized equipment to measure the actual amount of sound that is getting through a person’s hearing protection. It provides an accurate and objective measurement of the effectiveness of the hearing protection.  

The SDI Group offers Hearing Fit-Testing that meets the updated CSA Z94.2-14 (R2019) standard as per Alberta Occupational Health & Safety, Hearing Protection Devices – Performance, Selection, Care and Use.

This change is to prevent noise-induced hearing loss, as the effectiveness of hearing protection is significantly reduced if the equipment does not fit correctly or is not inserted or worn correctly.
