Posted: June 9, 2021

The Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC) recently released a revised position statement on Emerging Technology and Science. This statement supersedes the original CAOHC position statement on Tablet Audiometry issued in April 2019.CAOHC believes regulators have a duty to revise policy and statutory requirements to reflect advances in technology and emerging scientific evidence about physical and chemical occupational hazards to hearing. In particular, CAOHC encourages Federal and state regulators, researchers, and standards entities to assess emerging audiometric technology performance and comment on their practical use in hearing conservation programs.
