Environmental Health & Safety administers the Occupational Medicine Program for employees and students who may be exposed to health risks during the course and scope of their work and research activities.
The program functions collaboratively with university partners to provide risk assessment, medical monitoring, testing services, vaccination and training in compliance with regulatory and accreditation requirements.
Emerging health concerns are managed as an opportunity to educate, increase safety awareness, and cultivate relationships.
UF’s OCCMED Program is managed jointly by Environmental Health & Safety and UF Occupational Medicine Service, a division of the Student Health Care Center. Other partners include the UF Health Hearing Center – The Oaks, and Shands, as well as individual medical service providers outside the Gainesville area.
OCCMED’s management system resides within UF’s myUFL. Position information within Organizational Development includes department-identified job duties that apply to specific positions. Health assessment status records are housed within Workforce Monitoring.
Compliance with OCCMED requirements is improved by departments using Workforce Monitoring’s Department Next Exam Report. Individual’s checking their own health assessment status records through My Self Service also improves Program compliance.
Initial and periodic health assessments are based on individual’s assigned job duties. Procedures and Guidelines pages provide step-by-step instructions with how-to details.
No faculty, staff, student, or volunteer covered by the OCCMED Program may initiate or continue activities in the area of concern until they satisfactorily meet applicable medical criteria.
