Lung Function Testing
We can perform a respiratory assessment including spirometry. This is often required during the assessment of fitness for work in individuals with respiratory disorders. COSHH, Regulation 11 also requires respiratory health surveillance.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005) places certain requirements on businesses employing workers exposed to noise, above specified noise thresholds. We can perform hearing assessments including audiometry, at our facility. We can also remind you when review assessments are due.
Skin surveillance is appropriate where there is a recognised risk of occupational skin disease as defined in COSHH 2002 Regulation 11. This decision may be based on previous experience, Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheets or industry advice. Following the introduction of new agents suspected of causing skin problems, skin surveillance may be instituted.
Hand/Arm Vibration Testing/Assessment
We can assist you in fulfilling health surveillance requirements for hand/arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), as described in the Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005. This includes formal diagnosis (HSE Tier 4) by an Occupational Health Physician certified to carry out HAVS clinical assessment.
