Webinar: Auditory Fitness for Duty Evaluations

When: Thursday, January 23, 2020 1:00pm - 2:00pm ET

Description:
When hearing function is in question, functional testing is the best way to determine whether or not an individual retains the sensory capability to perform the duties and responsibilities of a particular job in a safe and effective manner.
