SMOHIT Restarts Job Hazard Screening Program
COVID-19 forced the cancellation of our Job Hazard Screening Program in 2020. Now, with more than half the country vaccinated, we feel that it is prudent to restart the program.
We implemented our health screening program years ago to help SMART members assess their risk due to high levels of asbestos exposure in the sheet metal industry. Although asbestos-related disease is not the risk it once was, there are a number of other workplace hazards that can cause chronic illnesses, such as silica dust. In addition, screenings can help identify non-work-related illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.
Screenings are free to members in good standing and are good ways to check-in on your overall wellness. Each participating member receives an examination that includes chest X-rays and breathing test; ColoCARE test to detect blood in the stool; blood sample to test for cholesterol, blood sugar and prostate antigen; and a physical examination and vitals check.
See our schedule below for upcoming screenings. Here’s to your good health!
