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 clearing physical includes a full history and examination, review of all work protocols and, when needed, we perform x-rays, pulmonary function testing, and blood testing. SafeWorks Illinois helps ensure your workers are able to perform their job duties safely in addition to providing early detection of any asbestos-related illness.
Any severe, life-threatening injury or illness should immediately report to the nearest hospital emergency room.
