Are you suited for work in high altitude environments?
Workers destined for altitudes above 3000m should know how to recognise symptoms at high altitude and what treatment is necessary and methods of prevention. With an increasing number of workers employed in high altitude mines, there is a need to ensure that these employees are physically able to travel to and perform work in high altitude environments.
Our High Altitude Medical Screen will work for you. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs on abrupt exposure to moderate altitude (3000m) in approximately 30% of individuals and at high altitude (4500m) in approximately. Workers destined for altitudes above 3000m should know how to recognise symptoms at high altitude, what treatment is necessary and methods of prevention.
Through pre-travel medical screening and education of workers to areas of high altitude, ProMedicals' staff has designed a cost-effective means to provide a preventative approach aimed at decreasing the health risk to employees.
