Black Lung Screenings in Your Area

Attention Coal Miners!


The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) will offer black lung screenings at no cost to you in your area. The screenings help to detect black lung disease and will be provided through our mobile testing unit. We encourage all coal miners (current, former, surface underground, and contract) to participate.

Screenings take approximately 30 minutes and include:

  • A health questionnaire
  • A chest X-ray
  • Blood pressure screening
  • A breathing test (spirometry)

By law, screening results are confidential. NIOSH will provide each coal miner with their results. We will send you your results through the mail approximately 8-10 weeks from your appointment.

Call 1-888-480-4042 or email to schedule an appointment. While walk-ins are welcome, we recommend scheduling your appointment to ensure a date and time that works best for you.
