HAZMAT Testing

UnknownA HazMat (Hazard Materials) Examination or ERT Exam (Emergency Response Team) is required by OSHA for those workplaces where exposure to hazardous chemicals or other materials may cause a variety of health problems.

Workers who routinely handle hazardous waste for disposal, have exposures to blood-borne pathogens, and/or assist in clean up of chemical spills must be screened on a regular basis.

Medical Screening can include:

  • Health/Work History Review
  • Physical Exam (targeting systems that could be affected by hazardous chemicals)
  • Laboratory Testing
  • Hepatitis B Vaccinations
  • Hearing Testing (Audiometry)
  • Pulmonary Function Testing (Spirometry)
  • ECG (electrocardiogram)
