The UAA Occupational Health and Safety Program (OHSP) applies only to individuals working within UAA animal facilities who are involved in the direct care of vertebrate animals and their living quarters, and those individuals who have direct contact with animals (live or dead), their viable tissues, body fluids or wastes.
Researchers who meet this criteria must complete a Hazard Evaluation Form prior to starting their work and resubmit annually. You will be notified if you fall within a risk category that requires completion of a Medical Questionnaire Form and whether a pre-assignment medical examination will be needed.
Download the necessary form and follow all instructions:
The Medical Questionnaire is a confidential document that is only to be shared with the Contract Health Care Provider and only retained in your medical files at his or her office.
