LUNG FUNCTION TESTS
THE BENEFITS OF LUNG FUNCTION TESTS
A lung function test is an invaluable screening test of general respiratory health.
‘If your lungs don’t work your heart won’t either’
Lung function/spirometry tests are undertaken where employees are exposed to fumes, dusts, solvents and/or dangerous airborne particles e.g. panel beaters, manufacturing plants, boat builders, woodworkers, spray painters, chemical and fertiliser products. Lung function tests will help you comply with the health and safety responsibilities under the 2015 Health and Safety at Work Act.
The employee undergoes a short series of questions and a physical assessment relevant to their lung function. The Lung-function test can be provided in your workplace.
