Spirometry Testing Mobile App

"There are no legal requirements to perform medical surveillance on individuals exposed to silica. Surveillance for silicosis is the accepted standard of practice for occupational medicine physicians. It should always be kept in mind that medical surveillance is not a substitute for good dust control in the workplace. Controlling exposure is the only effective primary prevention strategy. Spirometry is an optional component of the NISA respiratory medical surveillance program. The reasoning for making spirometry an option for NISA member companies are included in the Spirometry Testing mobile app.
Use of this tool on an iPhone, iPad, or Android device will assist you in documenting proper pulmonary function testing, the health professional who administers the tests, and recommendations for a workplace on limiting exposure to silica. All information is saved in your GoCanvas Cloud and can be shared as a PDF."
