By the end of this Technical Update, participants will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate procedures in conducting audiometric testing
  2. Explain the criteria for diagnosing Occupational Hearing Loss
  3. Describe the interpretation of audiograms in occupational health practice
  4. Discuss key areas in implementing Hearing Conservation Programmes at the workplace
