Q&A

Do you have workers exposed to hazardous dust, fumes, vapours or at risk of occupational asthma?

Respiratory surveillance / sensitizers

Could your employees’ respiratory health be at risk? If they work with chemicals or dust – substances that can cause sensitisation by inhalation, or can be irritating to the respiratory system – they may need respiratory health checks. As their employer, it is your responsibility to ensure any substances your employees work with aren’t harmful to them, and that you have measures in place for dealing with any health problems if detected. Implementing a respiratory surveillance programme – in other words, arranging regular respiratory health checks for your employees – is a proven way to protect their respiratory health. Working with an occupational health specialist, such as Imperial Health at Work, means you can detect any early signs of change in your workers’ health, and feel assured that any existing control measures you have in place are effective.
