Request a lung screening service

Employers have a responsibility to provide health monitoring for workers exposed to hazardous dust in the workplace.

icare Lung Screen, a mobile respiratory testing service, is just another way icare can support employers by visiting their worksite or premises across NSW.

Lung screenings are a quick and painless procedure that can help with early detection of a dust disease.

Each examination takes less than half an hour, and involves:

  • a lung function test by a respiratory scientist
  • respiratory medical examination by a doctor
  • if required, an X-ray reported by a radiologist.

Results are returned to icare dust diseases care to be analysed by a respiratory physician. A health monitoring report is provided to each worker and the employer is notified of any workplace injury.

Employers can choose the right service option depending on location and size of their workforce.

About the icare Lung Screen unit

Our mobile respiratory testing unit is a lung screening service on wheels.

On board is an X-ray room, advanced lung function testing equipment and a medical practitioner to conduct the examination. This minimises travel time for workers.

At a rate of $100 plus GST per person, you can book the unit for a minimum of 30 workers. It’s a good option for an employer with a larger workforce, and minimises disruption to the working day.
