Pulmonary Function Testing
Pulmonary Function Testing (Spirometry) accurately measures your employee’s respiratory performance and lung health. Establishing employee lung health history can help identify certain pre-existing conditions and risk factors. When workers are exposed to potentially harmful airborne contaminants, it can lead to long-term damage to your employees’ lungs or worse. In this circumstance, it is important to monitor the employee’s lung function and one of the best ways to do this is to conduct a lung function test at the start of employment and to continue monitoring it throughout the individual’s employment. Spirometry can also help determine if the way you manage airborne hazards in the workplace is effective, and in some cases, it is required by OH&S Regulations.
Benefits of Pulmonary Function Testing:
- Establish employee lung health history, pre-existing conditions and risk factors
- Monitor employee lung health over the course of employment
- Assess workplace airborne hazard management
- Assess suitability of wearing self-contained breathing equipment
