Hearing aids and batteries – Information for workers
We refer people with an accepted claim for work-related hearing loss to our network of hearing services providers. This network is made up of providers who have long-term contracts with us.
Overview of services
Our hearing aid program covers hearing aids, replacement batteries and related services for workers with accepted claims for work-related hearing loss. In 2016, we entered into an agreement with selected manufacturers to provide hearing aids to our clients. Our providers must order devices from the Standing Offer Price and Exception List for Hearing Aids and must complete the forms listed below every time they see one of our clients.

Our long-term hearing services provider contracts are open to new providers who qualify. To become a provider, you can contact WorkSafeNB’s purchasing manager to request the application form: Hearing Services Provider – Application for Provision of Services to WorkSafeNB, on behalf of New Brunswick Workers, Experiencing Noise Induced Hearing Loss. All the information you need is included in the application package.
