Safewell Solution

An existing customer of Safewell they wanted to consider chest X-Rays for all their employees who were potentially exposed Silica dust (respirable crystalline silica) during their working day. After a meeting to discuss the companies’ requirement, Safewell did some research and found a mobile X-Ray company and an Occupational Health Physician who would be able to carry out and interpret the results. Safewell compiled a proposal outlining all requirements and costs for the company. The company have agreed to Safewell organising this on their behalf and this will be rolling out over the whole of their company in 2017 enabling the company to maintain compliance and further look after the health of their employees exposed to silica dust.
