Employers have a responsibility to provide health monitoring for workers exposed to hazardous dust in the workplace.
icare Lung Screen, a mobile respiratory testing service, is just another way icare can support employers by visiting their worksite or premises across NSW.
icare Lung Screen provides health monitoring for workers exposed to hazardous dust in the workplace. The service consists of an X-ray room and advanced lung function testing equipment, all conducted by a qualified medical practitioner.
The painless examination takes 20 to 25 minutes meaning up to 50 employees can be screened in one day. A report is later provided to each worker, and further support through icare dust diseases care if necessary.
Employers can choose the right service option depending on location and size of their workforce.
Bookings can be made by calling 13 94 44 or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
