||Many workers receive an audiogram (hearing test) at some point, especially if they are in a hearing conservation program. This information sheet contains important answers to frequent questions workers ask about their audiograms. It addresses why workers should get regularly have their hearing tested, how to understand audiograms and why the results should be saved to help evaluate and maintain the worker's hearing. It also includes some basic information on the causes of hearing loss and how to prevent it.
