Model Surveillance Program for Persons in Hazardous Waste Operations   [open pdf - 175KB]

"The paper describes a standardized medical surveillance program for a company engaged in hazardous waste operations at multiple locations in North America. The company implemented a program in 1986 to comply with the OSHA hazardous waste operations regulations. The initial program had deficiencies including: 1) lack of consistency in medical testing between different sites: 2) difficulty maintaining confidentially: 3) differences in occupational medicine expertise among examiners which could affect occupational disease recognition and/or employee risk factor screening."
