Pneumoconiosis Examinations

The Pneumoconiosis Act requires that all workers subjected to dusty environments should have medical examinations done at least once a year to monitor any chest and health condition resulting from the exposure to the dust environment.

Various companies that operate under these dusty conditions such as Mining, Manufacturing, Construction, and Farming sectors are mandated to carry out these examinations to their employees. 

The completed examinations of these employees are sent to National Social Security Authority (NSSA) by the company for further assessment and issuance of valid “Red” tickets.

DX Centre carries out these examinations at company worksite.
