Enhancing The Health And Safety Of Miners With A Medical Imaging Strategy

Mining organizations take the health and safety of their employees very seriously and with good reason. The mining profession, important as it is, carries many health risks for its workers, including inhalation and ingestion of dust, chemicals, heavy metals and radiation, all of which can potentially poison workers and cause immediate and/or life-long health problems.

The Challenge Of Managing Employee Health Screening

As mining companies strive to create robust health and safety policies and practices, they are faced with a number of challenges when it comes to managing the health screening of their employees:

Miners are often migrant workers operating for lengthy periods in rural and remote locations and often don’t keep their medical records to hand.

It has been [traditionally] difficult for mining organizations to keep track of the screening and scanning history of their employees and thereby monitor the long-term health of employees.

Often miners’ medical images are misplaced or unavailable resulting in the need for re-screening, with the unnecessary risks and costs of over-exposure to radiation.

BridgeHead’s HealthStore® – A Medical Image Repository For The Mining Industry

BridgeHead’s HealthStore provides Mining organizations with a central repository for all of your employee medical images. New scans, such as chest x-rays and MRIs, can be easily uploaded into HealthStore, where they are stored and protected alongside the employee’s historical scans.
