This session will examine the medical monitoring that should take place for employees, depending on individual exposures. Review some of the potential hazards that are found in organizations and the medical surveillance programs recommended to address them. We will focus on how to identify gaps in surveillance programs and how programs can evolve with cross-discipline collaboration.
Discuss using the hierarchy of controls to remove or reduce hazards.
Discuss how to do a risk assessment prior to building a surveillance program, using AIHA Occupational Health Risk Assessment tools and Job Hazard Analysis and how to develop collaborations between other disciplines within the industry to help drive compliance.
Discuss examples of hazards in the workplace and the clinical effects that might manifest in the employee and the tools needed to establish and continually improve a medical surveillance program.
