FitTick provides on-site and in-house spirometry assessments (lung function tests) using either our purpose-built mobile testing booth, dedicated testing spaces in our local offices, or pop-up testing facilities which can be set up Australia-wide within 24 hours.
Why is a Spirometry Assessment necessary?
Since 2012 Spirometry testing is recommended and regulated under the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2012 (SA).
Frequent testing will highlight any changes in single or groups of employees with changes in the lung capacity giving companies the ability to to make changes to avoid costly loss of productivity whilst caring for their employees.
Ideally, pulmonary function testing (PFT) should form part of your pre-employment or onboarding process to produce current test results for your employee file.
Testing then should be conducted at least annualy so changes in lung capacity are recorded. Safework SA recommends “Spirometry Audits” to be part of the ongoing health monitoring process of workers exposed “to certain substances as part of your work”.
