NIOSH’s Mobile Occupational Safety and Health Unit will be conducting free black lung screenings at the Bluefield Coal Show in Bluefield, WV, September 13th to the 15th.  All coal miners are encouraged to stop by the mobile unit and participate in this free health exam. Typically, testing takes about 30 minutes and includes an occupational history, a health assessment questionnaire, a digital chest radiograph, and a spirometry (breathing) test.  Blood pressure screening will also be conducted.  Although walk-ins will be accepted, miners are urged to call 1-888-480-4042 to schedule an appointment.  Depending on the number of miners participating, some wait time should be anticipated.
