Is your employer requiring a Pulmonary Function Test to stay OSHA compliant?
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) does not generally require pulmonary function testing (PFT) for all workplaces. However, specific industries or job tasks may have PFT requirements under certain OSHA regulations, such as those related to respiratory protection or hazardous substance exposure. Employers should consult the relevant OSHA standards and regulations to determine whether PFT is required for their specific workplace or industry – contact us to learn more!
Individuals with respiratory symptoms: People who are experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, or chest tightness may be recommended to undergo PFT to determine the underlying cause of their symptoms.
Individuals with a history of respiratory conditions: People who have been diagnosed with respiratory conditions such as asthma, COPD, or pulmonary fibrosis may need periodic PFT to monitor the progression of their condition and assess the effectiveness of treatment.
Individuals with occupational exposure to respiratory hazards: Workers in industries such as mining, construction, or manufacturing who are exposed to airborne pollutants or irritants may be required to undergo PFT as part of their workplace safety program.
Individuals undergoing surgery or anesthesia: People who are scheduled to undergo surgery or receive anesthesia may need to undergo PFT to assess their lung function and ensure they can tolerate the procedure.
