Respiratory Medical Surveillance for Silicosis Mobile App

The objective of the medical surveillance program is to prescribe baseline and periodic health evaluations of workers exposed to crystalline silica. The guidance is modeled after an official American Thoracic Society (ATS) statement, adopted in June 1982. The Respiratory Medical Surveillance for Silicosis mobile app provides objectives. GoCanvas submissions can generate a unique submission number to be used as a job number.
