Asbestos Testing Services

Comprehensive Asbestos Physical Exams in the Twin Cities

For years, heat- and corrosion-resistant minerals known as asbestos were used to make a variety of commercial products, from insulation and fireproofing materials, to automotive brakes, textile products, and cement and wallboard materials. While the use of asbestos has decreased, these minerals are still found in many residential and commercial settings, posing a serious threat to workers’ health.

When handled, asbestos can separate into microscopic-size particles that remain in the air and are easily inhaled. Any exposure to asbestos fibers can contribute to injury and life-threatening diseases, including asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Protect your employees and stay in compliance with OSHA with Asbestos Physical Exams from My Medical Clinic.

Our providers are specially-trained to identify and respond to asbestos-related diseases and symptoms. We travel to your worksite to provide annual physical exams, and perform chest x-rays as needed. Employees will need a chest x-ray every five years within the first ten years of exposure.

The Asbestos Physical Exam consist of:

  • Medical and Occupational History Review 
  • Physical Examination, with a focus on the respiratory system
  • Chest X-Ray, with interpretation by a certified B-reader
  • Pulmonary Function & Spirometry Test
  • OSHA Respirator Medical Questionnaire
