Medical Surveillance (OSHA)

About Medical Surveillance (OSHA)

Medical surveillance is the systematic assessment of employees exposed or potentially exposed to occupational hazards. This assessment monitors individuals for adverse health effects and determines the effectiveness of exposure prevention strategies. A medical surveillance program includes the analysis of both individual and aggregate surveillance data over time, with the goal of reducing and ultimately preventing occupational illness and injury.

About Medical Surveillance (OSHA)

Individuals are examined by a Preventive PLUS physician on regular intervals and the content of the exam is determined by legislative mandate (OSHA), by agency recommendations (NIOSH), the nature of the chemical hazard, the biological material, or the physical agents to which they are exposed as part of their work assignment.
