Lung Function Testing in the UK
Work-related lung problems are a serious occupational health issue, and so it is important for employers to prevent these illnesses from occurring by carrying out regular employee lung function tests. Healthier Workforce provides professional lung function testing for businesses nationwide, and if our expert team detects any underlying respiratory health issues we then offer our professional recommendations to the business owner.
Spirometry is used during lung function testing to detect conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These lung issues can be caused by workplace exposure to risks such as glues and resins, grain dust, wood dust, and laboratory animals.
