Abstract
This testimony concerns the view of NIOSH on the use of medical testing of workers exposed to potential hazards as part of an overall program to protect worker health. NIOSH suggests that OSHA consider the two generic standards as dependent concepts that should evolve as a continuum and should integrate, as much as possible, the elements of environmental monitoring, biological monitoring, and medical screening. Specific issues raised by OSHA and discussed in this testimony include the value of exposure monitoring, effectiveness of existing OSHA requirements, initial monitoring and the discontinuation of monitoring, frequency of monitoring, full shift personal sampling or area and grab sampling, accuracy of sampling, notification to employees, record keeping, and overall considerations.
