Occupational health testing
OH4HO has undertaken a programme of spirometric health surveillance for all of Ahmarra’s employees involved in the manufacturing of doors.
The surveilllance is part of Ahmarra’s ongoing Occupational Health Policy.
Ahmarra’s general manager, Steve Oliver, said: “The continued good health of our staff is always a priority and we do everything possible to ensure that the materials we use do not have any negative impact on their health.
“We already take a number of protective measures to ensure this but this additional health test will provide extra reassurance to our employees.
“A recent HSE report in Woodworking Health found that only 13% of manufacturers had a health surveillance programme in place, which highlights how poorly regulated this area is in the joinery industry.
“We hope that by highlighting this issue, more joinery manufucturers will follow our lead.”
As part of the lung function tests, the attendees were blowing as hard and fast as they could into the monitoring equipment to assess lung capacity and how efficiently their lungs can expel air.
The results were used by management to assist in determining whether existing control measures were adequate.
