Silica Physical and Clearance

Silica Exams are a new standard from OSHA starting in 2017 – it now includes the construction industry, general industry, and maritime industry. OSHA reduced the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) significantly – to 50 micrograms per cubic meter. Silica physicals are required for employees that wear a respirator more than 30 days per year; specifically respirators that are required to protect them from silica dust exposure. Employees must have a silica exam if their exposure meets or exceeds the action level. The action level is half of the PEL; so that would be 25 micrograms per cubic meter. (For reference, if an employee made just one standard paver cut a day over 15 years, they would reach action level)

Included in a Silica Exam

  • Silica Clearance Forms
  • Silica Questionnaire
  • Vitals (height, weight, blood pressure)
  • Pulmonary Function Test
  • Visual Acuity Screening – Snellen (distance)
  • Whisper Hearing Test

School and Sports Physical

Per New York State requirements, students must have physical examinations before entering Kindergarten and Grades 2, 4, 7 and 10, and prior to attending a College or University. Students also looking to be cleared to work will need a school physical.

Sports physicals are required before a student athlete can begin their sports season. Both School and Sports exams are typically not covered by insurance.
