Advanced lung screening service for high-risk occupations
International Labour Organisation (ILO) Guidelines were developed in the 1970s as part of occupational lung health surveillance for occupations that are exposed to dangerous dust such as coal or silica dust. Lungscreen Australia implements ILO guidelines without compromise ensuring worker safety and company compliance with legislation.
In March 2019, Lungscreen Australia was awarded the Queensland Government contract to provide ILO reporting for all Queensland Coal Workers chest X-rays. The Resources Safety & Health Queensland (RSHQ) acknowledged Lungscreen’s ability to facilitate the (NIOSH) developed B reader program as it was intended and as such has independently validated Lungscreen Australia ILO reporting service.
As the only independently validate ILO reporting service in Australia choosing Lungscreen Australia ensures that your company is compliant with legislation where ILO Guidelines are required and that your workers receive the best ILO reporting service in the industry.
Advanced lung cancer screening service for high-risk individuals
Lungscreen Australia also provide an end-to-end lung cancer screening service. While most lung diseases are curable when detected early, unfortunately, lung cancer often presents with little or no symptoms until it has progressed into the incurable and advanced disease stage.
There are many factors that place individuals at higher risk of developing lung cancer such as age, ethnicity and smoking. Occupational exposure to dust can also increase and individual’s chances of developing lung cancer. If your company is interested in providing workers with access to a lung cancer screening service, Lungscreen Australia can help.
