Section 27-28. Medical examinations of employees in connection with rock work

If the risk assessment shows that employees are exposed to gas or dust that puts them at risk of developing pneumoconiosis or other harmful conditions, the employees shall undergo medical examinations adapted to the risk to which they are exposed.
The medical examination shall be carried out before the employees start any work where they risk exposure. Such examinations shall be carried out at regular intervals thereafter and at least every five years. The content and frequency of the examination shall be decided by a medical practitioner based on the employee's health and the nature, degree and duration of the exposure.
On termination of the employment relationship, the medical practitioner will decide whether there is a need for a medical examination. If further follow-up is needed, the employees shall be informed about this in writing.
