Yes, see `man smartctl` for details.

I tend to monitor the "Reallocated_Sector_Ct", "Current_Pending_Sector"
and "Offline_Uncorrectable" lines of `smartctl -a /dev/sda`, after
running tests using "-t conveyance" for new drives, then "-t long"
every week or so.
You might want to configure smartd as well (see /etc/smartd.conf).
