What can I expect if I am scheduled to go see the Occupational Health Physician?

You will be asked to fill out a form describing what your job duties are and the type of Personal Protection Equipment you use. The nurse will take blood pressure and pulse. The Doctor will examine you and talk to you about your test results and will go over any questions you may have. If you are exposed to certain types of dust or are an asbestos worker you will have a chest radiograph to make sure your lungs are still normal. Employees who are exposed to certain chemicals will have urine analyzed to ensure that the kidneys are functioning properly.
