For employers

If you are an employer, you are required to provide health monitoring for each employee who is at risk of being exposed to asbestos, crystalline silica or other hazardous substances. 

DDB health monitoring service

The DDB's mobile health monitoring service can come to your work.

We offer a subsidised respiratory health monitoring service for workers at risk of exposure to asbestos or crystalline silica. 

The complete health monitoring examination takes only 15 minutes and is completely painless.  

A respiratory health monitoring examination includes:

  • an x-ray (if needed)
  • a lung function test
  • a respiratory medical examination by a doctor

The results are returned to us to be checked by a radiologist and a specialist respiratory physician.  

We provide a Health Monitoring Report to the worker and to the employer.  

We also guarantee safe storage of health monitoring records which can be accessed in future if required.
