At POIRIERCASTRO HSE, we take your company’s health and safety very seriously, and offer the most comprehensive health surveillance programs in the industry.
Not only do we offer industrial hygiene services to evaluate employee exposure to harmful substances in the workplace and keep levels safe, we also perform health evaluations, and any necessary follow up testing to ensure your employees stay healthy.
As part of our Respiratory Health Program, the first step is evaluating indoor air quality and making any necessary recommendations to keep occupational exposure limits safe, and determine the appropriate respiratory protection.
Once this is determined, our team conducts quantitative mask fit testing using our Portacount to certify the fit and train your employees on the use and maintenance of their masks.
Pulmonary function testing is then used to quantify the effectiveness of your Respiratory Health Program, and ensure that the health of your employees is being maintained from year to year.
Lastly, and most importantly, if the pulmonary function testing results show any signs of abnormality, then clients are referred by our Physician for x-ray testing as a follow up for medical clearance.
CHEST X-RAYS are required as part of a medical follow up if pulmonary function testing is abnormal or if an employee is exposed to potential air borne hazards in the workplace.
Depending on the results of the x-ray and the symptoms that the employee is experiencing, a consult with our Physician specializing in Occupational Medicine may also be indicated.
If treatment is required, the Physician will then make any necessary referrals so that the employee can return to health as soon as possible.
For more information regarding chest x-rays or other services pertaining to respiratory health, please call 1-587-597-8378.
