Respiratory health for occupational exposures
A respiratory questionnaire is a structured questionnaire or survey designed to assess an individual's respiratory health in relation to their occupational exposures.
The questionnaire includes a series of questions about an individual’s:
- Job tasks
- Work environment
- Exposure to respiratory hazards
- Any respiratory symptoms they may be experiencing.
This helps to gather information about potential respiratory risks and determine if further evaluation, such as pulmonary function testing or medical examinations, is necessary. It assists in identifying individuals who may be at risk for occupational respiratory diseases and helps in implementing appropriate preventive measures and interventions to protect workers' respiratory health in the workplace.
