PRIME: ASBESTOS SCREENING & PHYSICAL TESTING

As part of our asbestos screening program the PRIME team will conduct a physical examination including a chest roentgenogram and pulmonary function test that includes measurement of the employee’s forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume at one second.

The employer is required to make the prescribed tests available:

  • Annually to those employees covered
  • As often as recommended by the examining physician
  • Upon termination of employment
