Medical Monitoring Program

Guidelines for medical monitoring of employees are contained in a number of sections in Title 8, California Code of Regulations.

The University requires faculty and staff to participate in this program if it has been determined their exposure(s) to hazardous conditions or chemicals may exceed or has exceeded the recommended levels. Once the baseline medical levels have been established, participants in the program are periodically examined for changes in health status.

Appropriate administrators and Environmental Health and Safety staff are responsible for identifying individuals who may have occupational overexposures. Employees must also be responsible for reporting their potential overexposure(s). EH&S staff will determine if the employee's potential overexposure warrants inclusion in the program and will advise the employee and the appropriate administrator(s) accordingly. Once an employee has been identified for inclusion in the campus medical monitoring program, EH&S will assume responsibility for scheduling the medical exams and record keeping.

The University has established a Medical Monitoring Program consistent with the 1996 CSU Office of the Chancellor "Employee Medical Monitoring Program Manual".

Medical monitoring by the university medical provider is at no cost to the employee.
