MOBILE WORK HEALTH VEHICLES

Mobile work health vehicles include the mobile work health the heart-lung scan tool, the mobile work health hearing screening tool, and the mobile work health medical laboratory.

The provision of protective and preventive health services in the area of ​​occupational health, the evaluation and analysis of workplace risks, the delivery of economic, qualified, fast and reliable occupational health services especially to SMEs, the medical examinations required for the early diagnosis of occupational diseases are provided by this vehicles.  It is aimed to make researches on health and occupational diseases, to be a pioneer for private and legal persons and organizations that will give or give services in the field of occupational health and safety, to set up models, to prevent the occurrence of occupational diseases by early diagnosis, to provide treatment of the diagnosed patients and / or to prevent the progress of the disease.

Mobile Work Health Heart-Lung Scan Vehicle

In the heart-lung screening vehicles of mobile occupational health; pulmonary function test (PFT), electrocardiography (EKG), pulmonary film, blood sampling  for body weight-weight index measurement and medical laboratory tests services are provided for the examination of employees. The mobile work health heart-lung scan unit is working with the digital X-ray system. However, the person is exposed to the X-ray beam at a lower dose than the conventional X-ray system during the shooting.

Pulmonary films taken according to International Labor Organization (ILO) standards can be displayed on the medical screen after 5 seconds of shots and quality control can be carried out and the shots can be repeated immediately if necessary.

Mobile Work Health Hearing Scan Vehicle

Mobile Work Health Hearing Screening Tools; health examination of employees, body height-weight index measurement and hearing test are performed. It is aimed to determine occupational hearing losses that may occur in employees who are exposed to noise in their workplaces. Hearing test performed on mobile health screening units gives more accurate and reliable results compared to hearing test done in workplace environment because it is carried out in quiet cabinets. Hearing test screenings allow early detection of occupational hearing loss and early prevention.

In this vehicle; there are 2 units of audiometer and 2 silent cabins of which the ceiling, floor and walls are covered with special sound and heat insulated material. In cabin air conditioning system and heating system are available. The silent cabs are fixed in such a way as not to disturb the car's driving technique and stability.

Mobile Work Health Medical Laboratory Vehicle

In Mobile Work Health Medical Laboratory Instruments; biochemical and toxicological tests are carried out by taking the health examinations of employees, measuring body mass index (BMI), taking blood and urine samples. These are carried out primarily for the early detection of occupational diseases and also for other health surveillance. The samples taken for the tests that can not be carried out in the mobile occupational medical laboratory units are delivered to İSGÜM Ankara Central and Kocaeli Regional Laboratories by transportation according to cold chain rules in accordance with sample transportation standards and necessary laboratory analyzes are carried out.

Also there is disabled elevators in all our units so that physically handicapped workers can easily benefit from mobile work health tools.
