NSW-Government-logo121

SafeWork NSW has issued a further two-year exemption for audiometric testing requirements of clause 58(2) of the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 until 31 December 2020.

The exemption is done to ensure persons conducting a business or undertaking in NSW are given an appropriate time frame to prepare for the implementation of audiometric testing of workers who are frequently required to use personal protective equipment (PPE) in workplaces with noise levels that exceed the ‘exposure standard for noise’.

The exemption was initially published on 9 December 2016 in the NSW Government Gazette number 111, page 3528.
