Our Staff

Hearing Conservation Australia employs Audiologists, Speech Pathologists, Acoustic Engineers and a Bio-Chemist to provide the highest possible quality of service.


Hearing testing is completed on-site by Audiologist; rather than Audiometrists. They conduct both the hearing screening and the full diagnostic testing, whilst being cost effective for workplaces, provides a high quality responsive service.
 
Education and training is completed by Speech Pathologists who have undergone further training in hearing rehabilitation. As trained professionals in the art of communication, Speech Pathologists deliver, informative, enjoyable multi-media presentations, leaving workers feeling empowered and motivated to protect their valuable asset of hearing.
 
Noise surveys are completed by Acoustic Engineers with considerable experience in workplace noise. Our Engineers are highly knowledgeable consultants who can provide advice on engineering control and sound treatments.
