Lung Function Assessment

This may be used as part of a regular screening program delivered at your workplace or for an individual risk factor in your business.

Prolonged exposure to a range of inhaled substances can cause Occupational Asthma and respiratory problems.

Similar to the audio tests, a baseline assessment should be undertaken and the frequency of further tests judged on the level of exposure.

These tests are usually conducted more frequently in the first two years of employment, when initial reaction and damage can emerge.

Potential substances that could cause of occupational asthma:-

• Isocyanides – vehicle spray painting, foam manufacturing

• Flour/grain/hay – handling grain at docks, milling, malting, baking

• Glutaraldehyde – disinfecting instruments

• Wood dusts – saw milling, woodworking

• Electronic soldering flux – soldering, electronic assembly

• Latex – protective gloves for health care, car repair, beauticians etc

• Laboratory

• Working with animals

• Some glues/ resins – curing of epoxy resins

• Respiratory sensitisers are subject to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH 2002)
