ABSTRACT

NIOSH Guidance for Post-Exposure Medical Screening of Workers Leaving Hurricane Disaster Recovery Areas   [open pdf - 45KB]

"The primary purpose of worker screening programs is to protect worker health by early identification of work-related conditions in individual workers. Through screening, adverse effects in individuals can be recognized in a timely way to provide intervention for the individual, while identifying potential risks to others in the same population of workers or populations with similar exposures. The goal of screening is to identify those who need further medical attention, not necessarily to definitively diagnose or treat based only on information provided through the screening."
