An audiologist has university postgraduate training in the assessment of hearing and the rehabilitation of hearing impairment (including assessment, fitting and management of hearing aids). Audiologists are the primary specialists responsible for the non-medical management of ear disorders.
 
In the workplace setting, an audiologist can assist with a range of services, including:
  • pre-employment hearing testing
  • base-line and on-going hearing assessments
  • assessments for industrial deafness
  • assessments for hearing aid needs
  • assessments for protective hearing devices needs
  • provision of reports on the results of the above assessments
  • input into work health policy development
  • advice on hearing protection measures.
