Heavy metals testing is used to screen for or diagnose heavy metal poisoning in those who may have been exposed to one or more heavy metals, and to monitor excessive metal concentrations in those who work with various heavy metals. Such occupations include construction work, mining, radiator repair shops, and firing ranges. Our laboratory offers several different groupings to fit your unique needs.
A worker’s exposure to hazardous materials on the job can be unknowingly brought back to a person’s home. Heavy metals such as lead dust, concrete-crusted clothing, and a variety of oils, greases, and solvents can all unintentionally poison the employee and/or their family. Heavy metal exposure can affect individuals in different ways and those who have underlying health conditions may be even more vulnerable. Employers have the responsibility to protect the safety and health of the worker by having a safety policy in place.
