Lung Function Testing (Occupational Spirometry)
Occupational spirometry is a screening technique used to detect early damage to lung function resulting from exposure to substances hazardous to health. Identifying any damage as early as possible allows appropriate follow-up remedial action in the workplace and any necessary medical referral of the employee.
Panoramic Safety offer a high quality spirometry service to help employers achieve compliance with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health regulations (COSHH 2002), which states "employees who are, or are liable to be, exposed to a substance hazardous to health, the employer shall ensure that such employees are under suitable health surveillance".
What does a Lung Function involve?
The spirometry testing process requires attendees to be weighed, have their height measured, answer a short questionnaire and inhale and exhale multiple times into a spirometer. The exhalation of air from the individual’s lungs will create electronic readings that allow the technician conducting the test to identify any early damage to lung function.
Panoramic Safety will undertake this for you, providing a practical, detailed employer’s report, summarising the data and offering practical recommendations to you, the employer.
Each spirometry appointment takes approximately 15 minutes and is completed with the latest spirometers.
