Employers are required to implement a medical surveillance program for all workers exposed to airborne concentrations of asbestos.
A full OSHA asbestos physical must be performed by or under the supervision of a licensed physician, annually to be in compliance with OSHA regulation 1910.1001. All results are reviewed by a provider, in order to provide immediate and comprehensive care if necessary.
Our Asbestos medical surveillance examination includes a medical and respiratory history review, physical examination including a chest x-ray, and pulmonary function testing. Laboratory and/or other testing will be performed at the discretion of the examining provider, if deemed necessary. Our goal at SafeWorks Illinois is to ensure your employees are able to safely perform their job duties.
