Mineral mine and quarry medicals

At Konekt, we help mineral mine and quarry workers stay safe at work with respiratory health surveillances.

Why do I need to perform respiratory health surveillances?

As part of their jobs, mineral mine and quarry workers may be exposed to respiratory hazards such as dusts, welding fumes and diesel particulates.

Over time, this exposure can result in changes in lung function or in extreme cases, lung disease.

About the medical

The medical examinations for respiratory health surveillances include:

  • A chest examination that includes listening to the lungs
  • A chest X-ray dual-read by qualified radiologists to the international standard
  • Spirometry tests and comparisons with previous spirometry tests where available
  • Any examination deemed necessary by an appropriate doctor to support the early detection of injury or illness to the person’s respiratory system
