FREE BLACK LUNG SCREENING

NIOSH truck

NIOSH’s Mobile Occupational Safety and Health Unit will be in your area soon to conduct black lung screenings. All coal miners are encouraged to stop by the mobile and participate in this free health exam. Typically, the exam takes about 30 minutes and includes a short questionnaire, a chest radiograph, and a spirometry (breathing) test. Blood pressure screening will also be available. Depending on the number of miners participating, some wait time should be anticipated.

Note: Miners are eligible to participate in the NIOSH examination program every 5 years. Therefore, miners that have participated within the past 5 years will not be eligible for this examination.

PARTICIPATION IS FREE AND EASY — RESULTS ARE CONFIDENTIAL
