Working in or with contaminated soil
Working with polluted soil may cause health issues. This is why you are entitled to a periodical medical examination related to working in or with contaminated soil.

The exam contains tests of hearing ability, sense of smell and vision as well as blood and urine tests and measurements of height, weight, BMI and blood pressure. It also includes a pulmonary function test and a physical examination, which is carried out by the medical examiner. Class B This is an extended version of the class A-examination and is applicable to all employees who work with respiratory equipment. Additional exam: ECG Class C This is an extended version of the class B-examination and is applicable to all employees who work in the open air. Additional exam: cardiac stress test.
The above-mentioned health checks should take place annually in accordance with the CROW regulations.
