A Closer Look at OSHA's Medical Screening and Surveillance Requirements

OSHA has medical screening and surveillance requirements in several of their vertical standards. While there is significant commonality among the various requirements in each standard, no two are exactly alike. Unfortunately, this fact is not recognized by all occupational health physicians. This presentation will take a closer look at this often misunderstood part of the OSHA regulations and let employers know what their obligations are for medical screening and surveillance.

Workplace Mental Health Hazards – The Role of the Occupational Hygienist
Workplace mental health (WMI) issues may result in serious harm to workers and costs for employers and society. It is estimated that WMH issues are prevalent in approximately five percent of the working population and cost the Canadian economy between $15 and $33 billion/year. Historically, mental health complaints have been considered to be outside of the occupational health and safety (OHS) and thought to be the purview of human resources or human rights commissions or ministries responsible for health. However, general duty clauses in OHS legislation have been interpreted to extend to WMH issues, even though the legislation does not make a specific reference to mental health. Jurisdictions have begun to incorporate mental health hazards into OHS legislation. Employers will be called upon to assess and control a previously under recognized and complex hazard in the workplace. But who are the health and safety professionals who will guide the employer through this process and help develop and implement controls in the workplace? Based on their training and skill sets, occupational hygienists are uniquely positioned to fill this gap.
