The Agile approach to HazMat Medical Surveillance
Working in the presence of occupational hazards necessitates attentive monitoring of employees for potential adverse health effects. Agile is committed to helping customers mitigate liability risk, so our HazMat Medical Surveillance programs provide recommended, OSHA-compliant screenings and physical capacity assessments, as well as continuous biological monitoring for exposure to hazardous materials. Our custom programs include:
As per OSHA Standards, Agile will assess each of your enrolled employees as part of an ongoing physical exam process known as medical surveillance, which determines if an employee meets the physical and medical requirements established by OSHA. Surveillance includes chemical exposures, hearing conservation, periodic checks and more. These examinations can be broken down into two categories: Surveillance and Periodic Examinations.
Medical surveillance has a preventative focus and is an on-going observation of employee health for the purpose of prevention of illness or injury. This is carried out with identification of health abnormalities caused by job site exposures and risks. Surveillance aims at creating snapshots (through examinations) of an employee's health on a periodic basis to be used for a comparative basis to previous exams.
Examinations are performed at our clinic and involve medical procedures (e.g. physical examinations, biological screenings, medical history) that are used to assess possible illnesses or abnormalities. Examinations are typically performed on an annual basis as part of an ongoing Medical Surveillance program.
