COAL WORKERS' HEALTH SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM

Two Coal Miners with dust on them

FREE BLACK LUNG SCREENING for ALL COAL MINERS

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, testing takes about 30 minutes and includes questionnaires, a chest radiograph, a spirometry (breathing) test and blood pressure screening. Although walk-ins are accepted, miners are urged to call 1-888-480-4042 to schedule an appointment. Depending on the number of miners participating, some wait time should be anticipated.

Participation is FREE and EASY. Results are CONFIDENTIAL.
