_purchmhe_160pxMedical surveillance refers to the conduct of health testing and the analysis of health information (and test results) to identify whether hazards in the workplace are affecting the health of employees.

In Ontario, Medical Surveillance programs are specifically required for employers who use substances regulated under the Occupational Health & Safety Act and its Designated Substance Regulations.

Occu-Med provides mobile and on-site medical surveillance programs for employers, using mobile testing units and traveling nurses to conduct the required employee health testing right at the workplace, thus saving employers significant costs in downtime and employee time away from work. We provide complete surveillance programs for:

  • Asbestos
  • Benzene
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Silica
  • Isocyanates
  • and all other designated substances

As the experts in this kind of medical testing, we can help clients identify what must be done, and on what kind of schedule. Many family doctors, for example, are simply not familiar with the requirements of the Occupational Health & Safety Act and their regulations.

Clients receive reports which include summaries of the findings and "Fit Letters" as required by the regulations. In all cases, our reports also comply with relevant privacy legislation like the Ontario Personal Health Information Privacy Act.

Contact us to learn more about our surveillance programs and the cost/benefits of having them done directly at your workplace!
