HAZWOPER - Medical Surveillance discusses guidelines for designing a medical program for personnel working at hazardous waste sites. Workers handling hazardous waste can experience high levels of stress; their daily tasks may expose them to toxic chemicals, safety hazards, biological hazards, and radiation. They may develop heat stress while wearing protective equipment or working under temperature extremes or face life-threatening emergencies such explosions and fires. OSHA recommends a medical evaluation for employees required to wear respirators. In addition, it supplies a table of some common chemical toxicant found in hazardous waste sites with recommended medical monitoring procedures.
