The primary purpose of the Occupational Medicine Program is to identify conditions that could lead to occupational disease. Secondarily, the program provides compliance with state and federal regulations that require medical monitoring.     

Occupational health surveillance includes tracking occupational injuries, illnesses, hazards and exposures. Analysis of data trends guides efforts to improve worker safety and health.

Staff who may be asked to participate in medical surveillance include those who wear respirators, use Class III or IV lasers, are exposed to high noise levels, work with teaching animals, and those covered by other regulatory programs that require periodic exams.
